Breathing has been established as a performance-enhancing tool in all physical activities. We found breathing exercises to enhance singing and vocal strength. Similarly, your daily swimming can also be bettered with some breath control practices. Breath control is essential during swimming as your lungs are under constant pressure underwater to inhale more air and maintain comfort, pace, and performance.
We breathe all the time, but breathing becomes complicated when we get into the water. Most swimmers breathe in through their mouth, which should be quick, lasting about a second. Time is significant in breath for swimmers, especially beginners. Breathing time in the water should be twice as long as breathing above water to build and maintain a comfortable rhythm and balance of your breath. This video teaches exercises and tips on how to breathe easier in the water and make it natural like all above-water activities.
