The Swim Parachute

Let’s talk about some  useful tool equipment for Swimmers :

The Swim Parachute is a great tool for training for swimmers. Becoming comfortable with fatigue is a crucial part of the racing experience, particularly to swimmers who regularly compete in the 200’s of stroke. The added drag experienced while swimming with a Swim Parachute simulates this feeling to perfection.

The Swim Parachute is a valuable tool because it requires continual emphasis on stroke efficiency and endurance. Added resistance in the water is a safe way to build strength in the large muscles that move big weight as well as the small muscles that stabilize your bones.

Training under resistance helps to reinforce better swim technique, especially in the front quarter of the stroke where the catch is taking place.

Your body is smart, the added load will force it to find ways to be more efficient to move through the water.

The Swim Parachute is made up of a comfortable, adjustable nylon belt, which is connected to a durable parachute.

The Swim Parachute provides varying levels of resistance for everyday training. Resistance training is proven to build muscle, increase endurance and boost speeds where the results can be felt immediately after the parachute is removed. The Swim Parachute is versatile, compatible with all four swim strokes and non-intrusive as it does not get in the way of kicking or flip turns.
