USE

See instructions for further information

Disconnect elbow sleeves from device and pull arms through to the middle of each sleeve. Connect sleeve button to the device into slots (interchangeable to suit each drill)(see diagrams)

Perform a range of sculling and dog paddle drills, using the different slot settings

Setting 1 (most inside slots) Use this to islotate hand scull, this can be done one hand at a time or both hands together, to create water feel and a relaxed hand. this will also connect the first part of the stroke to your core and ensure a streamline catch

Setting 2 (next setting out) use this setting to isolate the hands and foreams, this can be done one arm at a time for freestyle specific, or two arms for breaststroke/butterfly. This will introduce more of the front of stroke without losing streamlining and continued connection to core. Smaller swimmers and females may not need to continue past this setting

Setting 3 (third setting out)introduce more of upper arm and back muscles, by introducing more rotation being careful not to pull back too far under the body. Most swimmers will not need to proceed past this setting

Setting 4 (forth setting out) for larger swimmers

BACKGROUND

As a past Australian Representative swimmer & surf swimmer, and a coach in these sports - I have had an interest in swimming technique for many years. I have myself continued to swim for personal satisfaction, and in doing this have learnt significantly more about technique through coaching and observing.

I have noticed a growing trend in swimming, and a greater need for people to choose this sport due to its stress free and injury free nature, community enjoyment, and other benefits & qualities including therapy. Swimming has also been enhanced in the sporting world in recent forms, such by ocean swimming and masters swimming, complimenting swimming, triathlon, surf swimming, and also learn to swim as a means to survival in aquatic environments.

As competitive swimmers - we spent countless hours in the pool developing efficient strokes using drills and form strokes (butterfly and breaststroke) to improve the catch and a distinct action at the front end of stroke (which is commonly known as early verticle forearm EVF). However poor or late swimmers have not been given this development opportunity and in some cases, swimming coaches have failed to identify this as the most important part of an economical and efficient swimming stroke. Due to this growing trend is the need for swimmers to beat their times or peers in events by training harder, yet swimmers are losing track of why they are not improving by ignoring the obvious - their inefficient technique


PICTURE 5 ORIGINAL UNIT TEST

TECHNICAL PROBLEM

While I swim - I often have people asking me why I move so easily through the water, and asked if I can give them simple tips to improve their swimming. The first thing I recognize when observing their stroke under water (consistent in nearly every example) is the dropping of the elbow at the catch, leaving very little room for improvement in a swimmer - no matter how much practice they do.

Some swimmers not only drop the elbow, they also start their catch under their body with a straight arm - rather than near the surface in front of the body. I have determined the major inadequacies in a swimmer who has difficulty moving through the water, is their poor water feel and angles at the front end of stroke.

This lack of feel and strength tends to force the swimmer to drop their elbow below their hand in an attempt to pull the water, or to try to pull the water by simply spinning the arms before any meaningful catch or streamlining is created, causing resistance which leads to slow swimming.

Whereas a competent swimmer will have a firm hold on the water out in front of the body and will be streamlined - allowing the elbow to remain high and the hand to drop creating a definite bend in the elbow up to 90 degrees.

This allows the swimmers body to move over the hand with great ease and little resistance.

SOLUTION PICTURE 2 INCORRECT STROKE

Introducing drills attaching elbows to the swimfast floatation device, will allow a swimmer to roll over the floatation device forward from elbows forcing correct elbow angles for all swimming strokes (except backstroke) and other water based skills.The device also creating down-hill feel, uncommon in poor swimmers water position

By creating floatation under the elbows will ensure the swimmers catch is in front of the body (not underneath) and this will allow the swimmer to start extending their catch forward by way of drills, without dropping elbows.

The device also helps to lead with elbows during recovery which intern helps to roll the body. These are all essential movements within an efficient swim stroke.

Whilst using the device - the recovery (forward extension of the arms normally above the water) is under water, therefore the use of the device also trains streamline and relaxed recovery with great emphasis on forward momentum

The width of the device to be individually adjusted to slightly broader than swimmers shoulder width, flexible sleeves are attached to each end to fit over swimmers elbow.

A simple attach/detach mechanism will allow for easy fit and urgent release. The device has efficient buoyancy to keep swimmer afloat in case of emergency. Note - some swimmers may need to use a pull buoy to assist with floatation at their lower end

Image 2/5 shows typical front end stroke of poor swimmers, avoiding these hand and elbow angles, and position of arm at front of stroke will be highlighted in later images using the device



ADVANTAGEOUS EFFECTS OF SWIMFAST 

By using this device regularly for drills will train specific swim catch movement (front of stroke) for (freestyle, butterfly and breaststroke) out in front of the body and creating water feel and strength for all swimming strokes and water based exercises.

The device will force the swimmer to bend their elbow and complete the drills and specific strengthening exercises without the resurfacing of bad habits, but instead - training the correct muscle memory for swimming within just one use.

Drills include, but are not limited to - dog paddle, extended double arm fast hand movement (scull), and broader sculling drill (like breaststroke).


The device can also be used for:

Kick sets - as a replacement for a kick board, detach and hold in front of body, it is more streamline

One arm drills - as a replacement for a kick board, detach and hold in front of body it is more streamline and does not interfere with the stroke

Strength training- fatigue sets in, particularly around forearms, it is quite anaerobic

Resistance training - attach the device to ankles and swim freestyle normally, or breaststroke arms (instead of band and pull buoy), (use inner settings)

Coordinating a 6 beat kick - by kicking hard whilst doing dog paddle drill

For swimmers who panic breathe - allowing the swimmer to coordinate breathing while doing swimming drills

Paddle work - where paddles can expose bad technique, so by using paddles for strength with the device - will also perfect stroke and streamlining through this area
