I am giving away my ten simple steps to improving your swimming technique. These are effective for triathletes of any level.
Step 1 Master Floating: This sets the foundation for everything. If you can not float well, do not skip this step, master it.
Step 2 Learn How To Kick Well: There are many nuances to kicking: ankle flexibility, pointed toes during the apex of the upkick and down kick, and relaxed back of the knees are a few areas.
Step 3 Master the Streamline Position: This is essential for fast swimming: Practice an efficient streamline every training session. Keep the elbows in a tight line next to each other and stretch our body from the fingers to toes in opposite directions.
