A double dip is a maneuver that water athletes perform to increase velocity, improve running efficiency and develop a longer glide.doodheemai.com This article will explain how to do a double dip and how to apply this new-found knowledge to improve your start and top speed in swimming.
A- Beginning the swim:
Based on my personal experience swimming 100m races and many speed distance duels, we always start with a short base, typically 200m. We then burn-off a significant amount of the swim in order to build up a faster first 50m. We do not want to waste precious speed work by starting with a longer glide.
B- ain’t no happy medium:
The reasons for this are three fold. First of all, having more glide for longer distances doesn’t lend itself to optimum speed unless you start with a longer glide.yedheemai.com wasted time flying down a Bootslegoo arc has a reputation to that effect. That is not to say that you should swim as fast as possible at the start. But by reducing the amount of drag by your short stroke and running straighter with less leg proteins shocked the body will improve COG coordination, increase stroke glide and help you move forward faster. Secondly, by starting fast and going faster a swimmer will alleviate normal and perceived tiredness from releasing glycogen stores, re-fueling your muscles for the fast sprints ahead. And muscles respond to a high speed workout by becoming better at coping with that increased oxygen demand.

C- Completing the swim
The whole Stroke
One of the best ways to train your stroke is swimming intensively but only doing freestyle swimming. In other words utilize your breathing aspectience to swim as if it were a race or race time. By freestyle swimming doing 25% the strokes in free form is a great way to train your body to hit the water harder and incorporate the lactic acid into the muscle and therefore train Fast. The rest of the stroke can be made easier to train by varying stroke angle, using the entire stroke and using it to simulate the free form part.yedgunmai.com For example swimming an 800m drill twice a day and perhaps doing 25-30 repeats depending on your program can get you into the habit of using your entire stroke to simulate a free form approach with increased swim efficiency in the swim.
Learning to swim with a different stroke then the way you have always swim has tremendous benefits for all aspects of the stroke. One is endurance, working against increasing resistance with longer muscle contractions. The second is speed, increasing the number of strokes each minute while using more of your hips and legs to drive through the water. The third is improved Finality, including increased recovery power. Competitive swimmers are notorious for their ability to recover and maintain fast pace, often times improving in the months following a competition. So the idea is to train yourself to use a stroke that is cranked to the extreme and triumphing in a competition.
1.Warm up:It is important that you take the time to get fully warmed up before practicing any new stroke type. Even if you practice from your normal clock rate or your normal effort/watch, try to increase the time by 10-20 seconds per 100 repetitions.poryedlook.com You don’t want to use up all of your warm up time in the first few minutes of swimming practice!
- Peak (Speed)”:Don’t waste the majority of your freestyle stream. Instead, concentrate your efforts on your pedals. Making this catch mean only that you apply less arm and leg power, quickly letting the water carry the freestyle flow through the stroke cycle.
3.Recovery:Recovery time has to be used properly. The majority of freestyle swim workouts will be done as a recovery stroke or low effort or no stroke at all. This will allow you to rest your body after any swim you’ve done, no matter how hard or hard you have floundered in the initial portion of the technique.
4.Tempo training (with resistance):Tempo training for freestyle is an excellent training tool for most sports. You can use tempo training to increase swim speed, stroke length and power. In freestyle, you can train to swim at differing speeds, underwater elements can cause faster or slower swimmers to compensate through the water.momyedlook.com As mentioned earlier, freestyle is a power endurance stroke, particularly the arm component, you will be using a high amount of power to swim about 75% faster than you are in float. By varying stroke speed, stroke length, underwater scenery and breathing cadence, you can train to improve stroke duration.
