In the final days of 2012, we want to look back and reflect on what an amazing year this was for the sport of swimming. Multiple Olympic Trials...the London Olympics and Paralympics...the Istanbul SCM World Championships. Go Swim would like to give a standing ovation to all the swimmers, worldwide, who thrilled us in 2012 with displays of jaw-dropping technique and who inspired us with their skill, athleticism, fitness, determination, and sportsmanship.
A little technique work to start the week right, with inspiration from Go Swim Freestyle with Jason Lezak.
Developing power and the proper pull for freestyle takes an understanding of where real power comes from.
This week's pic is of Olympian hero, Jason Lezak setting up for a massive pull.
This week we honor our favorite hero swimmer, Jason Lezak! Today, we're happy to announce that Jason and his wife, Danielle, welcomed their 2nd son, Blake, on November 2nd.
While there are many examples of great swimmers loping, or falling, into the water after a breath, for most of us normal swimmers, it's a much better idea to maintain a direct and stable body position while swimming freestyle.
With the Pan Pacific games starting today... which country will dominate?
This week's set allows you to work on three focus points for freestyle: low breath, Early Vertical Forearm (EVF), and 6-beat kick.
Available immediately, get access to the entire Go Swim Freestyle with Jason Lezak video online, anywhere in the world, anytime you want it. Unlimited viewing!
We're a couple days late for Cinco de Mayo, but what the heck. This week's set requires that you can count to 5.
Getting stuck in a swimming mantra, or a generally accepted "way" to do things, is very typical of all swimmers. Breaking through to find the way that works specifically for YOU is atypical, but necessary for you to reach your potential. The mantra that yours eyes should be looking DOWN is one of those mantras that each swimmer needs to examine for him... or her self.
