How to swim in the pool?

Everyone finds their reasons for visiting the pool. One is important to lose weight, not applying for serious efforts and grueling training, others want to keep their body in good shape, others primarily take care of health. It is not uncommon for parents who are interested in the development of their children to choose swimming. Let's talk about how to make classes pleasant and safe in our article.

Safety rules

It should be said that the pool is considered to be a place of increased risk. Swimmers need to follow a number of rules and guidelines to help protect them from possible injuries and accidents. The main person in the pool is a coach or instructor. All classes are usually held under his sensitive supervision. Accordingly, the requirements of the instructor are mandatory. Let's get to know the basic safety rules that everyone should be aware of.
The start and final of the workout means an instructor. He does this with the help of a conditional signal. Entering the water and leaving it is only allowed with his permission.
Swimmers move in the water counterclockwise. This rule always applies. This is especially important when several swimmers are on the same track. Keep the right side constantly, it will not collide with other visitors on the track and do not interfere with them.
There are situations when during training the student gets tired, and he needs rest. In this case, you need to move to the corner of the track. This will help not to interfere with the swimming neighbors.
If the mouth or nose got water and it should be disposed of, you should pay attention to the drain.


There are a number of restrictions that should also be adhered to by visitors to the pool. For example, it is strictly forbidden to swim without a special cap. You can not jump from the sides of the pool, it can cause injury to other visitors or yourself. It is also forbidden to push, "hang" on the track, make noise and chew gum.

In addition, it is forbidden to swim across the pool, as this may interfere with the rest of the engaged. In any case, it is impossible to give false signals about help,in some cases it can lead to panic, and on the water it is very dangerous. Do not interfere with other athletes, you need to show respect for each other.

Compliance with these rules will ensure the safety not only of yourself, but also of others.


The main principle of swimming is the need to stay on the water, lowering into it the head, and at the same time to keep the body elongated. There are only four common ways of swimming, and they all have their own peculiarities. Let's take a look at each of them.


How to breathe properly?

The main reason people make mistakes in swimming is the need to breathe. However, experts say that everything is not as complicated as it seems. Learning to breathe by putting your head in the water, you can spend only a couple of days in class. You need to remember the basic rule - exhalation is made at the moment when the face is lowered. It can be made both through the nose and through the mouth. Even young children master this technique. Training can take place under the guidance of an instructor or on your own.

In order to learn how to exhale into the water, you should do as follows. First, you need to stand at the side and put your hands on it.


Next, you need to take a swimming board and, holding on to it, swim a little, lowering his face down. Since the body in this situation is not necessary to hold, you should move with the help of feet. For breaths the head rises above the water, for exhalations the same again lowers. After short training, the swimmer usually understands how to do it more conveniently, and the process ceases to cause difficulties.

If it is a question of swimming with a rabbit or breaststroke, the inhalation is taken accordingly either when turning the head sideways or when it is raised. Such activities help to understand that swimming with a neck that is constantly tense is much less pleasant than breathing in the water. In addition, the load on the vertebrae is unlikely to benefit.
