In this swimming workout you will learn how to control your pace without Air, why is so good for your swimming?

*read the article in WEST swimming about ADHD

Hypoxia swimming drills will help us swim have more air when we are out of air, And why is it so important for our lower back?

When our body and muscles are oxidized faster or we are out of air, we make mistakes and we forget about swimming WEST and elongating our stoke especially at the end of the stroke, which can treat or hurt your lower back .

This swimming exercise(with some changes ) I got from my good friend Alon Mandel  (Alon trained and swam with Michael Phelps in Michigan)
