Hey guys, so I'm considering getting into swimming. I plan on going weekly.

I can swim, as in, I can not drown and swim the length of the pool a couple of times. Are there any resources or tips that you guys can offer for improving on my basics and becoming a stronger swimmer?

former fishboi, stopped because i did it for way too long in a competitive environment and just started hating it. for beginners, i'd say focus on time, as in swimming for an extended period. it can be 5 minutes then taking a break, or 10, whatever you really feel comfortable with. freestyle is the easiest, or backstroke if you like bumping your head lightly when you first start out. just give yourself a nice, slow pace to begin, you're not really looking to cover distance or laps, just keep going really. focus on breathing on every fourth stroke, as breathing every third is pretty unnatural when you're starting out. after 45 minutes/ an hour, you'll feel worn out for sure. good luck dudes

sorry, small sidenote: invest in a decent pair of goggles and a jammer. going in with trunks is fine, but there's a lot of extra drag with them and if you're slow anyway you'll just feel slower and have to work harder. use your whole body when you swim. it's really easy to forget you can kick as well as move your arms. to go with that, every pool should have a few kickboards and pull bouys laying around if you want to work on your kicking or pulling specifically. keep your fingers together, pretend they're a paddle. again, good luck out there, nb
