Masters swimming workout 9- Hypoxia & legs

Before you run to this amazing and hard workout you should try to do workout 7 & 8 and only afterwords do hypoxia and legs.

Why is this so important and hard?

Most masters swimmers that didn’t yet practice the WEST swimming technique will feel they don’t have enough air, or their legs will sink.

In this exercise you will learn how to swim without air after a fast 100 m kicking.
