    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    So the first arm pull will catch and hold just prior to being past vertical where you can roll over on belly and continue the arm stroke (so long as this is one continuous movement) then take the second one into the turn?

    I'm not certain, but I believe this is how I taught myself to bk turn thinking it was the standard method.

    Nothing wrong with that. I tried one of these turns this morning and almost ran headfirst into the wall. A few more tries and I'm sure I will manage to knock myself unconscious!

    This is why I wrote start your turn one stroke sooner. If you turn over where you normally do, you're going to try to fit 2 strokes where you normally do one. Also do them slow at first then build up your speed.

    From a logic point of view, freestyle is faster than backstroke, so if you take 2 freestyle strokes per length in backstroke you're likely to be slightly faster. When you master this turn you are able to hit the wall with more speed and momentum.

    Before I knew about them, I think going into a backstroke turn, I did a backstroke pull, then did a freestyle pull, but I'd turn over really close to the wall and often jammed my turns. With the new turn you rollover further out giving yourself more room to gage the walls.
    If you watch Lochte turn, he keeps kicking until right before he begins flipping his feet over. Many swimmers rollover to their belly, stop kicking and kinda glide into the wall.

    Then you take your freestyle stroke with your other arm then turn.
    Well, yes. If you are going to roll over to your right you start rolling as your right arm enters the water above your head, and you roll while it pulls. Then your left arm enters; you pull; and you flip. How else do people do it?

    The old way is
    A swimmer finishes his backstroke pull with his right arm. (so it's by his hip)
    Then he rolls over to turn and takes the one freestyle stroke with his right arm then he flips.
    So his 2nd to last stroke is a backstroke pull all the way and his last stroke is a freestyle stroke (both done with the same arm)

    Really? I never heard of that. Sounds very awkward. Maybe I never learned this because, like others in this thread, I learned the turn on my own (having been taught the old bucket turn, or whatever it was called).

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    From time to time changes occur in swimming. Changes in technique and changes in how swimmers are trained.
    Some of these changes are fads and phases, which come and go. While other changes are paradigm shifts.
    Paradigm shifts force the swimming community to adapt and adopt or be left behind.
    When these changes first arrive, they are often met with doubt, resistance, and excuses.
    Then as more and more swimmers adopt the shift and improve because of it. The shift becomes accepted.

    Improving swim suits all the way to full body suits were paradigm shifts.
    Streamline Dophin Kicking was a paradigm shift.
    Googles were a paradigm shift.

    The thing is, paradigm shifts are based in science. Paradigm shifts often fly in the face how swimmers and coaches think things should be done. They show what's possible. It's to our advantage to be early adoptors of paradigm shifts.

    Michael Andrew training is swimming super fast with Ultra Short Race Pace Training. (USRPT)
    In March 2014 he raced a meet a week and broke & rebroke the following NAGs.
    By remaining fast and even improving for an entire month, he showed a taper is something you can maintain rather than something you can hit or miss.

    200 FR 1:38.31, 100 BK 47.83, 100 FL 47.40, 200 FL 1:45.39,

    50 FR 19.85, 100 BK 48.14, 200 BK 1:45.14, 100 BR 54.04

    Will USRPT keep working for him and enable him to become a world class swimmer?
    Will he continue breaking records when he's in the 15/16 & 17/18 age groups?
    Will he break world records and race in the Olympics?

    Time will tell and times will tell.

    What is clear is you're likely to swim faster faster when you adopt and adapt to paradigm shifts in swimming.
    What are some paradigm shifts that helped you swim faster?

    Michael Phelps’ Coach Bob Bowman: The 6 Characteristics of Champions

    1) Champions have a clear plan for success and achieving their goals.

    2) Champions welcome challenges as a means to learn and grow.

    3) Champions produce normal and predictable performances in very abnormal and unpredictble environments.

    4) Champions rehearse success on a daily basis, mentally, physically and emotionally.

    5) Champions value the process of success more than any particular outcome.

    6) Most importantly, champions have a dream.

    When these changes first arrive, they are often met with doubt, resistance, and excuses.
    Then as more and more swimmers adopt the shift and improve because of it. The shift becomes accepted.

    Improving swim suits all the way to full body suits were paradigm shifts.
    Streamline Dophin Kicking was a paradigm shift.
    Googles were a paradigm shift.

    The thing is, paradigm shifts are based in science. Paradigm shifts often fly in the face how swimmers and coaches think things should be done. They show what's possible. It's to our advantage to be early adoptors of paradigm shifts.

    Michael Andrew training is swimming super fast with Ultra Short Race Pace Training. (USRPT)
    In March 2014 he raced a meet a week and broke & rebroke the following NAGs.
    By remaining fast and even improving for an entire month, he showed a taper is something you can maintain rather than something you can hit or miss.

    Will USRPT keep working for him and enable him to become a world class swimmer?
    Will he continue breaking records when he's in the 15/16 & 17/18 age groups?
    Will he break world records and race in the Olympics?

    Time will tell and times will tell.

    What is clear is you're likely to swim faster faster when you adopt and adapt to paradigm shifts in swimming.
    What are some paradigm shifts that helped you swim faster?

    Ande,

    Just saw this post from April. As a user and believer in USRPT, I loved your remarks! I would make one correction however. There is no real taper with USRPT. You are always ready to swim fast because you are always swimming fast in practice. There is NEVER slow swimming with USRPT, i.e., no drills, no kicking, no pulling just race pace repeats period.

    The small changes that you make before a big meet Dr. Rushall calls "peaking" rather than taper.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    I know this thread started in 2005 but I see it's still active! I skimmed through a lot of the posts but I couldn't find anything else about Tip #1 which is where I seem stuck. I'm always swimming slow in practice except when I'm told "all out" or "race pace." I'm really not sure if I get "lost" in concentrating on my technique and go super slow or if I'm unconsciously trying to keep gas in the tank for what the coach my dish up later in the practice. Please give me some advise. I really want to get faster in meets (I am already just because I'm relatively new to getting back in the water) but I want to see some real time drops which I know will only happen if I start practicing like my meet times indicate I should be!!!!

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Got it...sounds like I need to focus a lot on Tip 34

    "Everytime you train, you get to choose how hard and how fast.
    Which choice will you choose?

    You can choose to swim faster faster." Thanks Ande!

    Honestly, I think you should put these into a book and publish. They're more helpful than most of the books on swimming out there.
