Even if you’re not a competitive swimmer, proper nutrition is the foundation of good health and ensures adequate performance both on the job – and in the gym or pool.

The best place to go for detailed meal plans for athletes would be a sports dietitian or nutritionist who is licensed in your state and has credentialed expertise in that field. An example would be a certified sports dietitian or CSSD. They can provide a customized plan based on you or your swimmer’s needs, and can answer any questions you may have.

While some personal trainers attempt to provide nutritional advice, it’s important to note that they’re stepping outside of the realm of their expertise and education when they do that. Most of them had very minimal hours of ‘training’ in that arena to get certified, and their goals or their client’s goals, are very different from that of a swimmer or average person. They simply don’t have the depth of knowledge a dietitian would.

Catch More Water, Earlier with the Forearm Fulcrum

EVF (Early Vertical Forearm) is a position that is a critical to fast swimming across the board. EVF is most often considered to be the "front end" of the stroke, or the start of the pull or catch. The Forearm Fulcrum locks the swimmer's wrist in line with their forearm, encouraging them to anchor their elbow and pull with a larger surface area.  A vertical forearm is seen when the elbows are kept high which also helps engage the muscles in the chest, core, and lats. Coupled with a timely rotation of the hips and torso, EVF will increase speed and also endurance over a longer sustained effort.

Learn to add EVF into your stroke with using the Forearm Fulcrum to complete these drills..

4 rounds (@ moderate intervals)
*First 2 rounds with the Forearm Fulcrum

4 x 50 Freestyle Single Arm Drill (3 right, 3 left, 3 both arms)
