The aim of using a Swim Keel is to keep your body aligned to eliminate any excessive sideways movement.
When using a Swim Keel, focus primarily on its position: the stable position is with the larger part pointing upwards.
When swimming freestyle with a Swim Keel, do not kick too hard with your legs, keep your body relaxed and adjust its position properly.
Here is the best way to use it:
- Place the Swim Keel between your thighs This will help prevent your legs from sinking and allow you to focus more carefully on your head position.
- Keep your head at an angle of approximately 45° underwater while focusing on the blue line on the bottom of the pool. This will create less drag and allow you to swim faster.
