HOW TO DO IT Sitting on the edge of a chair, flutter kick with your legs straight, as before. Inhale and exhale strongly through your nose and mouth together, as you did with your face in the water. Try to think only about the kicking and the breathing. Don’t worry about how many kicks per breath you’re taking. As long as both are continuous and together, you’re doing fine. Do this for thirty seconds. EXTRA TIPS When combining the breathing and kicking skills, keep the legs straight and breathe rhythmically.
As you do the following exercises, try to think about nothing except your mouth and nose, isolating them from the rest of your body. HOW TO DO IT The Mouth: Pinch your nostrils shut. Purse your lips and inhale strongly through your mouth—pretend you’re drinking through a straw. Then, keeping your lips pursed, exhale just as strongly through your mouth, as though you’re cooling off a cup of hot coffee. Hold a hand in front of your mouth to feel the expelled air. Repeat this ten times, breathing as deeply as you can.
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Since I’ve been swimming all my life, acknowledging everyone who has contributed in some way to the information found between the covers of this book seems a more formidable task than writing the book itself! But here goes. I’d like to thank: My parents, Leon and Dorothea, who introduced me to the wonders of the water at a very early age. My sisters, Elaine and June, who have always been supportive of my swimming endeavors, and have shared their expertise as well. Particularly my brother Paul—former All-American and international swimming champion at Yale University, who, in his coaching career, has brought the La Salle College swimming team to its first conference championship since 1966—for sharing his theories and techniques with me.
