I would like to share some of the interesting things I have found out along my synchronized swimming career as an athlete and coach, things that maybe if I had not tried the sport to a certain level, I would have never found out or learned from it. So, this is the insight I would like to give you. I hope you have a good imagination, because you may need it at first before trying and living it out to understand exactly what I mean. For example, when I speak about sensations, you can think about them, but until you try it a few times, you may not get what I mean.
Synchronized swimming is an extremely technical sport, which when done well, it can offer you a lot of resources to grow in the sport and even experiment with new movements or even challenge gravity like elite swimmers do. Because it is so technical, having different points of view to execute the same movement can help the athlete search for their own style.
The more resources and tools we have to grow, the better. The problem doesn’t come at times from the tools, but from the lack of training time, of planning well the objectives and the number of things to work on. So, my suggestion is that you use all your tools and resources on different training techniques until you find the right one for you and your team.
