Swimming is not only a summer vacation but also a very good exercise to lose weight. It can also exercise our cardiopulmonary function and make our bodies stronger. For those who have never been exposed to swimming, it must be difficult to swim. But as long as we understand the following points, at least we will learn to swim much faster than others, and naturally learning to swim will become much easier.
People who have never swam before should start swimming by floating. First, they should make their bodies float in the water, so we should not rush to swim in the middle of the water at the beginning. We should start from shallow water, where the water level is almost half of our body. Relax your whole body, choose a casual posture, squat down or slowly try to climb on the level to see if your body will float. In short, put your whole body into the water except your head and feel the buoyancy of the water. Because in shallow water, there will be no danger, we should feel the feeling of the body in the water naturally and boldly, and gradually overcome the fear in the water.
We move freely in the water and gradually adapt to the water. After overcoming our fears, we can try to take a deep breath, submerge our whole body, even our head, feel the underwater world and feel our heartbeat. Slowly open your eyes and look at the whole underwater world. After you basically overcome your fear, you can hold your hands on the ground, beat the water with your feet alternately and practice floating yourself with your feet. At the end of this step, you can occasionally hold the ground without your hands. At this time, you will be surprised to find that your body has a sense of floating and swims forward.
When we gradually master the suspension, we don’t have to worry about the body sinking to the bottom of the water. At this time, we can go to the middle of the water, leave our feet off the ground, spread our hands, and then keep treading water to keep an upright position, so that our hands and feet can cooperate to control our body posture. When this step is practiced in the later stage, we can slowly change the direction of treading water and try to swim with the movements of our hands.
hands and feet
Practice the movements of hands and feet. Beginners suggest that it is best to learn breaststroke first. Breaststroke is the simplest swimming skill. You can practice the basic skills on the shore as in the video. When you get into the water, you can complete this set of natural and coherent movements, practice it repeatedly, and master the breaststroke skills completely.
Swimming style is actually not required for beginners. Beginners may learn to swim in a dog crawl or frog style, or even dive in a plunge. No matter which posture, once a beginner learns to swim, other strokes are no longer difficult.
