Coach Karlyn Pipes from Kona, Hawaii has some tips on how breathe better, swim faster, go longer without getting tired.

Karlyn will be on the GOLD COAST soon and will be offering a one evening Faster Freestyle workshop at Bondi Uni on November 29 from 6-9 PM, and a two-day swim camp in Casuarina Dec. 1-2. More information at www.karlynpipes.com

Many swimmers and triathletes and swim much slower and with greater effort just because they are not breathing effectively.

You want to RELEASE your air, not BLOW it out. Try saying the word Alo-HA under the water. At the very least, you will be greeting the water with your ALOHA! Here are some addition tips:

• Try not to hold your breath and make sure to let some air out right away so the CO2 in your lungs doesn’t build up and expand making you feel like you need to breathe all the time. You just need some space! Release your air by humming or singing your air out always leaving a little in reserve.

• Try swimming with your mouth OPEN. Not only will this help you to relax your neck and shoulders, it will allow for a steady and soft airflow/air exchange. THINK: Talk to the FISHY’S

• Don’t exhale too hard: Hum your air out mostly through your nose. THINK: Don’t YELL at the FISHY’s

• Keep some air in RESERVE: Try not to dump it all out leaving you on empty as this may 1) make you constantly feel out of breath 2) cause you to suck in water, not air and 3) is use up a LOT of extra energy.

• Avoid the “suck and tuck and erupt” syndrome. This is where you “suck” in a deep breath, “tuck” it in your chest tightly and hold it, then “erupt” it forcefully right before you snatch your next breath. See first photo for example.

• If you employed the suck, tuck and erupt method it will be followed "Popeye breath" where you make your mouth super-small to suck air in. This will restrict your ability to get the needed air in making you feel out of breath (even when you are not working hard) and needing to breath more often.

• Learn to LET GO of your air with ALOHA, don't hold it or force it and soon you will be able to breathe easily in any conditon and be a better swimmer! www.karlynpipes.com
