Re­sis­tance Band

Triathlon Plus - - Swim Toys -

sim­ £4 A rub­ber band that straps around your an­kles so that you can’t kick or move your legs. Ben­e­fits: Bands are used by in­ter­me­di­ate and ad­vanced swim­mers to add re­sis­tance to the front crawl stroke. They can be hard work and un­less you get your stroke right, your feet sink straight to the bot­tom of the pool. Tip: If you want to in­crease your stroke rate, a band is one way of forc­ing you to do this. For many swim­mers, in­creas­ing the stroke rate is the only way to stay afloat with a band.
