A big challenge with improving your skills is that there is a lot to work on, and you can only really focus on one thing at a time.
A result, you need to be really careful and really selective with what you choose to work on.
In the next few posts, I'm going to give you simple cues that make a big difference.
#6. Swim Silent
If you're making noise, you're wasting energy.
If you're struggling to stay silent, that probably means you don't have enough CONTROL over how you're swimming.
You're probably not comfortable in the water and you're probably not getting relaxed.
Swimming silent is a great test for how well you're doing.
AND it's great practice for improving that skill.
Focus on getting silent.
THEN work on adding some speed while STILL staying silent.
