Swim Technique Explained

Welcome to the first official AP10 technique and analysis course. This will be an intimate session where you will discover some of the elusive art of swimming faster and more efficiently. It will be a very small group of 8, which will maximise the individual nature of the information and learning.

Have you ever wondered:

  • How do I improve my technique?
  • What drill’s should I be doing?
  • Is there another way to swimming faster than just swimming faster?
  • Why don’t I get faster when I’m pushing harder?
  • How do I conquer the Open Water?

This course is suitable for anyone who can swim 100m continuously to the advanced swimmer. Alex has years of experience coaching and correcting all levels!

This course will be divided into 2 components:

  • Filming of your Stroke – this will be both above and below the water. From this you will be given key elements to focus on and individual drills to enhance your development.
