  1. Good video’s. Others that could be useful are…1)Race strategy (how to pace yourself), 2)Finding your legs after getting out of the water, 3)Effective warm up’s

  2. I am a competitive children’s swim team coach who is helping a triathelete do his first ironman competition swim. He cannot do a flutter kick without using fins. The faster his legs move in an alternating way the slower he moves and eventually stalls. Please tell me how to coach him to do a proper flutter kick (ie what should I say or do?). Thanks

  3. Greetings from Denmark.

    Looking forward to your new newsletter!

    A couple of questions: I started training alone for the last year after almost 30 years away from competitve swimming. I currently swin 2km in OW in around 35 min. How does that compare to top athletes?

    Also, I swim without a wetsuit all season and switch to the pool when the water hits 12 degrees C. I notice a lot of swimmers in suits all season, even when the water hits 20 degrees, so it can’t be for keeping warm, does a suit increase your speed?

    Thanks for your help.

  4. Thank you for all the videos. I can swim like a banshee in the pool, but when I get to open water I really struggle keeping my face in the water.

  5. Videos are brilliant for kicking OW series off Brenton. I especially like the snippet on sighting, had no training and had to adapt my own technique (which was similar to the sight and breathe but I breathe then sight) I will give your technique a go to see if it make it easier to retain speed.

    Regarding future tips, I agree with Steve above, tips on hitting the right pace and getting your land legs would be great (I fall all over the place, especially after 3km or 5km swims)…

    Keep up the good work.

  6. Great videos! A video on race strategy would be great (I might have missed it.) I’m typically out in front on the swim by a minute or so in Oly distance tri’s. Should I be dropping back just to draft off others?

Brenton and Mitch were great to work with at the clinic, Good to get video analysis to work on straight away, practice some new drills and go home knowing what you need to work on.
