Swimming tip. How to win a race and swim faster. Positive self-talk


We talk to ourselves all the time. “this is too hard, you can’t do this,
, you will do this! this is easy! Lightweight baby!” Most of the time we don’t even realize it
but we are constantly talking to ourselves. But the way we talk affects the way we swim,
even if you are just learning how to swim. imagine what it would’ve done to Michael
Phelps if he was thinking “oh these guys are probably faster than me, I don’t think
I can beat them”… I think he would’ve probably lost all of
his races if he thought like that. positive self-talk is easy when things are
going well, but it is most important when you have doubts, when things go wrong or when
you have fears. In all of these cases talking negatively will
only make things worse which in turn will bring more negative self-talk. to master the art of positive self-talk try
this: first, be aware of your thoughts, identify
when and why the negative thoughts come and let them go and change them for things like “I can do this, I will swim the fastest,”
“Common body, you can handle more pain than this!” repetition also helps. “I’m a good swimmer, I’m a good swimmer,
I’m a good swimmer, I’m a good swimmer” Recall your greatest performances from the
past, it doesn’t matter if they are swimming related or not. You are just bringing back positive feelings. Like the time you felt extremely accomplished
by winning an award. If you are dealing with uncontrollable nerves,
accept them and welcome them. Then calm yourself with thoughts like “you’ve
got this, this is easy, you can do this” while you also breathe deeply and slowly each
time. Remember that you swim with your body but
also with your mind. so don’t forget to Train your mind. If you liked this video click here to watch

    Can you do a video on how to gain resistance for swimming the 200 butterfly?, like specific workouts or something? Because I start well the first 100 but I dont have the resistance and speed to do well on the last 50.
