The image below shows a typical high school swimmer. While she generally maintains a level body position to minimize resistance, the force curves indicate where she can adjust her technique to swim faster.
Aquanex research has found that even Olympians can move their hands through the water more effectively. Note the loss in force with the left hand and the lack of increase of force in the right hand. Both of these limitations prevent this swimmer from going faster. Carefully targeted instruction followed by periodic retesting can help a swimmer improve technique and swim faster.
Ultimate Performance Swim Studios offers comprehensive Aquanex recording and analysis. We are the only swim program in all of Southern California to offer this comprehensive system. The Aquanex system has been developed over the past thirty years by Dr. Rod Havriluk and Swimming Technology Research at www.swimmingtechnology.com.
