I’m Gary Barclay. And today I’m going to talk to you about one of the more common problems in freestyle, and that’s incorrect breathing timing.
In regards to the timing when you swim, there’s one very easy way to make sure that you breathe at the correct time. And that is, when you’re swimming if you enter into the water in front there, as your fingertips enter the water that is the correct time to turn your head to the side to breathe. So as your fingertips enter, turn your head to the side, and breathe in. That’s the correct time to breathe.
