Swim Gadgets

Use of tools

Should you use tools such as snorkel, dolme, hand paddles, kickboard and fins to improve your swimming? This is what Terry Laughlin, head TI coach and founder of Total Immersion Swimming, says:

"If a special tool causes the swimmer to turn a weakness into a strength, then it is useful. But if it is used to hide weaknesses, then it should be avoided."

Tempo Trainer Pro

When traditional swimming training uses all kinds of aids, Total Immersion is limited to one, namely Tempo Trainer, which is a small electronic metronome that helps one to keep a certain pace. It can be set with an accuracy of 0.01 s. Because

speed = tempo * arm length

so you can swim faster by increasing the pace and maintaining the arm length. With the help of Tempo Trainer, you can, for example, practice swimming at a faster and faster pace and keep the technique. Simply increasing the pace and losing the armrest length does not lead to any speed increase. In the end, it's like slipping with shiny tires on ice.

Front snorkel

Very suitable for technical practice as you do not want the breathing to interfere with what you are focusing on.

Öronproppar

För att förhindra att vatten kommer in i öronen, så är öronproppar ett bra val. Speciellt gäller det simning i öppet vatten, där vatten i hörselgångarna kan påverka balansen.
