Adjusting capacity in water is one of the crucial factors that is needed before learning swimming. The initial step is to grip the wall with, either way, one or two hands. Inhale through the mouth for approximately 3 seconds. Now put your inside water and exhale for 3 seconds.
When our head is inside water we make a slight bend in the knees and also make the shape of our back little curvy so that we can get a fine grip to move our body up and down.
The next step also continues with a similar exercise but this time moving with or without hands.
Exercise before Swimming
It is mandatory to do both exercises before starting any training session or swimming.The purpose of this exercise done is to make correct use of lungs to breathe properly like taking air in and slowly breathe out. This exercise is done for the separation of breathing in the nose and mouth so that you won’t exhale air from both nose and mouth. This makes a water-free from the nose.
The movement of our hip while our knees are bend it makes the hip warm and makes a faster blood circulation for the hips and the lower back.
From laying to stand with or without wall
We hold the wall using both of our hands we wait for few seconds to float and slowly we move our knees up to the stomach and bring back to the hands slowly exhaling. And at last, we move the foot towards the pool floor. Only after our leg touches the floor we slowly lift our head above the water.
Use the wall support
If we find this exercise is comfortable then we shall repeat the exercise frequently without the support of the wall. We lay in water by the support of our hands. After a few seconds, the air bubbles are blown from our nose while doing this air bubbles we bring knees to the stomach and move the hands back. And only if our feet touch the floor of the pool we bring our head slowly above the water. If it is not done correctly it will bring stress at the lower back while standing
The purpose of this exercise is to learn how to stand correctly with no stress on the back and neck while making use of muscles and arm for protecting the joints and also lung capacity can also be expanded.
By doing this we can prepare ourselves for exercise without breathing while we swim and when we need to stand and when we have to breathe can be learned.
