    swimming This is not the case and recently I suffered a cramp because I had let things slip It occurred two weeks after I d competed in the World Masters Championships 3K open water swim Training had been sporadic after the event and with my focus being on pure swimming over the past two months I had not been to my regular yoga class The cramp happened following a long drive late night and a morning coffee I was in the pool with no dry land warm up and because I d arrived late I had only water After a solid 50 minutes of swimming I should not really have been surprised to get a cramp in my lower leg because I was guilty of all the key traditional things that might encourage cramp to occur Next Related Stories Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position Should You Finish A Bad Training Session How to do a proper plank Why you should run on grass FILED UNDER Training TAGS About avoid cramp Cure exercise how to Information Overcome Prevent problem swim Most Read Popular Now Most Watched The 1 Workout To Get You Ready For Ironman Exercises to improve your reactive strength How Pain Tolerance Affects Performance Five tips for avoiding bike Injuries Managing Your Energy Levels On The Triathlon Swim Why you should run on grass Ask Coach Sara Best Drill To Promote A Strong Pull Phase The Pros And Cons Of SRAM s 1X Setup For Triathletes Swim Cramps What Why How To Deal With Them Joe Friel The Six Most Common Triathlon Mistakes The Perfect Two Week Taper Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position How to do a proper plank Should You Finish A Bad Training Session Joe Friel The Six Most Common Triathlon Mistakes Why

  • Swim Cramps: What, Why & How To Deal With Them
    fitter and incidences of cramping were reduced I think as triathletes undertaking swim training we can relate to these theories As I mentioned as pure swimmers we rarely suffered cramps and this would relate to sport specific fitness and having better biomechanics like Grainger and Mitchell found with the cyclists My swimming conditioning is not as good as it was and my pool time frequency is lower Despite my biomechanics still being good I am probably going to struggle to maintain them for as long now I usually find my athletes suffer cramps towards the end of a tiring set often when using fins in cooler pools or after heavy run or bike days Initially poor kicking technique can partially be to blame especially if you re kicking vigorously from the knee with the ankles flexed at 90 degrees With the legs in this extremely unhydrodynamic position a lot of force is needed to try and create forwards movement As we improve our swim technique we rely on our legs less and this should help The need to perform a powerful leg movement should diminish in time as the efficiency of the arms improves Unfortunately we then need to deal with the issues that a good leg kick then provide us with When attempting to learn a good front crawl kick it is important you do not spend hundreds of lengths with a pull buoy A good front crawl kick technique involves a small pendulum type swing from the hip with the legs predominantly straight with soft knees toes pointed away from the body and ankles relaxed while keeping the movement at the feet small It sounds simple but is an awful lot to think about and the effort to keep things relaxed will often mean exactly the opposite Trying not to present additional and unnecessary surface area at the leg which creates drag through kicking with a bent knee or with the ankles flexed at 90 degrees takes effort You want the water to flow down off the back and from under the stomach and not run into any obstructions Repetition and frequency are the key ways to ingrain this movement to the point that you can relax within it Dry land exercises to supplement will help but time in the water is key If you spend half your fitness sessions with a pull buoy between your legs you are wasting opportunities to practise correct kicking which helps to condition the legs laquo Previous Next Related Stories Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position Should You Finish A Bad Training Session How to do a proper plank Why you should run on grass FILED UNDER Training TAGS About avoid cramp Cure exercise how to Information Overcome Prevent problem swim Most Read Popular Now Most Watched The 1 Workout To Get You Ready For Ironman Exercises to improve your reactive strength How Pain Tolerance Affects Performance Five tips for avoiding bike Injuries Managing Your Energy Levels On The Triathlon Swim

  • Swim Cramps: What, Why & How To Deal With Them
    As I mentioned good swim position requires predominantly straight legs with the toes pointed For triathletes apart from when swimming this is not a position the legs and feet spend much time in Rejecting this position with a violent cramp is the body s way of letting you know it s not happy Once a cramp has started it might be possible to swim through it but this is unlikely and you may need to relax and stretch it If you are in open water and feel a serious cramp starting remember how buoyant your wetsuit is roll onto your back float and try to stretch it out In a pool it s easy enough to get out and walk the cramp off or stretch it out Some people finding skipping poolside works well light jogging or deeper static stretching can prevent the onset of a severe cramp It is a highly individual thing and you need to find what works for you If it is significant though and comes back again it s probably better to end the session laquo Previous Next Related Stories Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position Should You Finish A Bad Training Session How to do a proper plank Why you should run on grass FILED UNDER Training TAGS About avoid cramp Cure exercise how to Information Overcome Prevent problem swim Most Read Popular Now Most Watched The 1 Workout To Get You Ready For Ironman Exercises to improve your reactive strength How Pain Tolerance Affects Performance Five tips for avoiding bike Injuries Managing Your Energy Levels On The Triathlon Swim Why you should run on grass Ask Coach Sara Best Drill To Promote A Strong Pull Phase The Pros And Cons Of SRAM s 1X Setup For Triathletes Swim Cramps What Why How

    keep relaxed If you suffer cramps in the cold it might be worth starting open water swimming later in the season as temperatures rise It is also worth looking at the design of wetsuit you have Some have flexible textile panels for quick removal which means they re not as warm as those with full neoprene This makes it easier for cold water to pass rather than warming up the water sealed inside There is no one best way to avoid cramps Taking care of as many factors as possible will help to eliminate them Beyond diet hydration and stretching there is no substitute for good positioning and consistency in the water because of the unfamiliar legs and feet are put in The more time you spend in this position the more you will relax in it It s also worth throwing in a few gentle stretches between sets and be kind to your body when you push off from the wall laquo Previous Related Stories Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position Should You Finish A Bad Training Session How to do a proper plank Why you should run on grass FILED UNDER Training TAGS About avoid cramp Cure exercise how to Information Overcome Prevent problem swim Most Read Popular Now Most Watched The 1 Workout To Get You Ready For Ironman Exercises to improve your reactive strength How Pain Tolerance Affects Performance Five tips for avoiding bike Injuries Managing Your Energy Levels On The Triathlon Swim Why you should run on grass Ask Coach Sara Best Drill To Promote A Strong Pull Phase The Pros And Cons Of SRAM s 1X Setup For Triathletes Swim Cramps What Why How To Deal With Them Joe Friel The Six Most Common Triathlon Mistakes The Perfect Two Week Taper Swim Tip
