Finis Freestyler Paddles
wiggle.co.uk, £10.99 Hand paddles increase the surface area of your hands, boosting both propulsion and resistance. Benefits: Hand paddles enhance your feel for the water during the catch phase of front crawl. You really get a sense of when you’re pulling the water and when you’re not. For advanced swimmers they also provide variation and extra resistance to front crawl workouts. Tip: Try the Finis Freestyler paddle. It’s designed to help you avoid a crossover – a common front crawl mistake where your forearm crosses the centre line of your body as it enters the water.
