Flip turns for Triathletes

Posted by coachlisa on January 21, 2008

Mermaids,

Regardless of the fact that a triathlete will never need to do a flip turn in the middle of a triathlon, I believe the skill of being able to successfully incorporate flip turns into your workout sets helps you become a better swimmer.

It may be awkward to learn and difficult to do all the time, but as this article from Beginner Triathlete details, there are definitely benefits.

I encourage you to learn how to do better flip turns by watching the video demonstration.

happy swimming,

coach Lisa

12/22/07 practice
Tomorrow is the last class of the session, I hope everyone is able to attend. Don’t let the threat of cold wet weather scare you off, the pool will be nice and toasty. I’m sure there will be a few surprises or two too! See you on deck.
