BEGINNERS SHOULD START SWIMMING WITH FUNDAMENTALS, SUCH AS FLOATING, KICKING, AND PULLING. MASTER YOUR BASIC SWIMMING SKILLS BEFORE LEARNING SWIMMING STROKES AND PERFORMING HARD SETS.
Think about gaining knowledge of swimming as if you are developing a new building. You want to start with a solid, firm foundation.
Before erecting the walls and installing the roof, take care of your cornerstone. In our case, the foundation for our building would be some basic swimming skills. Among them are floating, kicking, and pulling.
The logic is pretty simple. The ability to float and correctly move your arms and legs in the water is your solid foundation for swimming strokes.
Before I can give you some tips about floating and propulsion in the water, it's essential to talk about safety. Make sure that you are learning in a safe environment.
The safest place to be is the swimming pool, with lifeguards working there. Lakes, beaches, and deep swimming pools are not the best to learn the fundamentals of swimming.
