Task 1 a With a container full of water and sufficiently large, you can practice this exercise at home. Task 2 a This exercise requires a little more confidence. a It is to breathe normally with the tip of the nose touching the water surface. Task 3 a In the same vessel will submerge the whole face without exhaling air. a I want to set as a natural air pressure prevents water from entering the nostrils.
a Task: These exercises should be practiced until they feel natural, to the point where they become meditative. Exercise 3 a: a Bubbles to breathing has two stages: (1) when we inhale and air and (2) when we exhale and release the air. a When we swim we will not always be the face out of water and therefore not always going to be able to take a breath when we want. a This forces us to have to develop coordination between inhalation and exhalation, which is perhaps not so vital in land sports. a In swimming a mismatch between these two can result in water and let us breathe a hard time.
a This next exercise will help us work this coordination. a Breathing should be just how they do out of water. a Objectives: Learning to inhale and exhale in the water. a How it works: a We will stand in a part of the pool in which we do not feel comfortable. a Let’s grab the rim with both hands and opened her legs to shoulder width. a When they feel ready to breathe through the mouth (the volume of air to be taken should be like a normal breathing), immersed in such so that the ears are in the water, they expel the air and repeat the maneuver. a The breath may begin a bit before it enters the water face and may be made either by mouth as the nose. a How to do well well well. a To do this exercise as a professional is necessary that the two stages of respiration are carried on separate media. a For example, exhalation should NEVER make out of water. a I can not breathe in and out with his head above water, and for obvious reasons I can not do the inside. a This exercise should be done with such ease, that you can devote to think otherwise. Dry Swimming a: a With the same container used in the previous year can perform this same exercise. a Task: Achieve to 10 cycles of breathing (inhalation and exhalation out of the water in the water) well done. a These exercises are very good to regulate breathing when we are tired and help alleviate some of that burning sensation you feel when the water is going through the nose. a So not part of the list of exercises on the other sections, it is good practice them frequently (e. g at the end of each year). a must be practiced until the point that it is very natural. I hope to practice these exercises. A hug, JP biologist with an MBA in Biodiversity and expertise in fisheries management. Lifeguard and swimming instructor for Red Cross.
