1. Get in the pool. Walk around in chest-deep water learning how it feels to move through water and maintain your balance

2 submerge your face and your entire body. Hold onto the side of the pool or a friend and start humming, blowing through your nose. Place your nose u see water while humming,blowing bubbles at the surface. Then do the same thing while placing your whole face under water

Stage 2: floating and kicking

2. Adda a kicking motion. Place the noodle under your hips to help support you if you feel uncomfortable.

3. Hug a kicknoard to your chest, then ask your friend to support shoulders you lean backward and pick your feet up off the ground to learn the back float

4. Relax your neck and look toward the ceiling, arching your lower back slightly.bend your knees slightly. When you begin to feel comfortable, have your friend let go of your shoulders. With practice , try the skill without the kickboard

5. Use your hands to hold the kick-board very well against your chest carefully or in the front of your whole body as you then start practicing floating while kicking through the water. Try to summer your face inside water and then blow bubbles. Turns your head onto the aide to breathe.

Stage 3:  arm strokes

Hold the corner of the pool while you kick your legs behind you.

2. Let go of the wall with one arm and get down in the water using your arm, now draw a big circle round up and out of the water. Now after the full rotation, try to repeat the steps using your other arm to continue moving forward and crawl stroke

3. Practice the dorwardncrawl stroke while being a kickboard in front of your body ,propelling yourself though water

4 combine the entire stroke without assistance. Kicking your legs and stroking with your arms, submerge your face and begin swimming

Tips and warning 

Split up your practices into short 30minutes segment . progress slowly rolling yourself to master one skill before moving on to the next.

 

Enjoy your time swimming and remember to carry out all these with a lifesaver around.

Wow..

I literally Already feel like i i could go for a swimming competition.

Truth is sometimes swimming actually takes a lot of guts,cos looking into the circumstances of people drowning and all.

I feel like phobia for water or say swimming in water is one very big issue that needs to be conquered before one enters into the water too.

This is a really nice post,  I once went to a birthday party at the pool and my friend got injured,  the life guard took him out of the pool quickly,  I'm sure maybe that's another regulation.  This is a really nice information.

Stay within a depth you can handle. When you're first learning how to swim, don't venture into water that's too deep for you to stand in. That way, if something goes amiss, you can simply stand up and breathe.

The first step is to hold the wall with one or two hands. , we inhale through   the mouth for 2 seconds. Insert the head into the water and then exhale for 2 seconds.

While putting the head into the water we bend the knees and we will keep a slightly rounded back to create a smaller hip movement while the body is going up and down.

I love swimming! Not only is it great cardio but it’s also

super relaxing—and a great way to tone my arms and

back.

Try a backstroke first. Float flat on your

back, and do a flutter kick with your

legs. It absolutely interesting.

I remember my first experience in swimming, it was really a funny one.  It was a group hangout with friends, I didn't dare leave 4ft while others had gone over to the deep end, I was busy playing with the pool tyres. I tried going over half way the deep side, immediately I passed fear hold me I started shouting for help. But now I'm a good swimmer all thanks to a navy personnel who gave me the hints. Swimming is fun

I learnt that swimming is one the best aerobics that strengthens the legs hands and the general body, but the risk involved when you don't have a video for learning or good swimmer to teach you the rudiments makes it a no go area for me.

Honestly, I couldn't agree with you more. It also took me a long time to get used to the water. I had issues trying to be comfortable inside the water. Being scared and all but I was consistent with my tries and I kept training till I got good and comfortable enough to swim at deep ends of the water

Swimming has a lot of benefit o. I remember the first time i entered swimming pool i was so scared at first but i had to confront my fears. Perhaps this is the first lesson to learn before entering the pool for the first time. After which you can then proceed to feel the flow of the water by freeing yourself in the water.

Another tip is not struggling when you are drowning. Struggling makes you drown faster

Nice post.

I have always wanted to learn how to swim. I once downloaded a video tutorial on swimming from youtube when i was in school but the fear of getting drowned didnt allow me go close to water let alone trying what i learnt from the video.

But i actually do not believe watching video tutorial or reading post alone is enough to learn how to swim.

All the rules for a swimmer who is a beginner is clearly stated and understood so me I would chip in this, cause it has happened to me, please as a beginner in swimming exercise please be mindful of people you go to the pool with or people around you presntly in the pool cause your friends you went with to the pool may playfully push you inside thinking you are an expert in swming not knowing you are still a beginner and that would cause a problem, so be careful

Are you implying this lessons to all kinda or conditions of water bosies.. For example a stale deep stream would this be in com alliance with such . the point about swimming doea it depend on the strokes or the technique?. What about body alignment with the stream flows and viscous interaction with body weight? What do you say abouy these?

Actually, I find this steps tiring and difficult. I learnt swimming in an easier way. What I do butt caresol. Butt caresol helps you to float easily and reduce your weight in water. But it's unfortunate that so many people don't know about it. Although the stuff was invented newly to help amateur swimmers.

Swimming is indeed a fun but with a lot of disadvantages in it,before you go for swimming as a beginner you have to know the real dept of the river or swimming pool ,go with one or two of your friends that knows how to swim very well so that they can actually check if the dept is safe for you to swim.

The write up is interesting and helpful but reading a theory is far different from practicalizing, it will be more helpful if a professional is physically present to guide a new beginner when swimming. This is to avoid any kind of casualty
