Unconventional Wisdom

Here is a screenshot of some unconventional wisdom from our triathlon book:


Here at the waterblogged triathlete, we are not afraid to encourage triathletes to practice stroke training during swimming workouts! 

If you’d like to be a part of our project, today is the last day we will be accepting swim workout submissions. Click Here for details.

Do you primarily practice Freestyle or do you incorporate stroke training into your practices?

  1. I’ve just recently (probably because I’m reading YOU) started practicing some backstroke each session. You never know, right? Plus, I feel it helps round out the shoulder musculature.

  2. I only ever do freestyle. I don’t know how to do breaststroke or butterfly and generally find backstroke boring. I only do it when I want to keep moving but need more oxygen. 🙂

    • I think that’s one of the best reasons to learn backstroke. If you’re ever in a tight spot, it is good to know how to flip onto your back and breath without restriction. The breaststroke is good because you can see the entire time – even swim it completely heads up if you like. No triathlete “needs” to do fly. I think you’re fine with free and back for now, but I’m sorry back is so boring for you!!! I like backstroke better indoors than out.
