It is crazy to me how far I’ve come as a person, teacher, swimmer, and overall pool guy! haha People have called me Aquaman, "sadistic", and even of course... Mr. Dustin. What has the last ten years brought as a swim instructor. How do I think, how do I teach, and what can you get from me?
Timing, oxygen vs carbon dioxide, and more oh my! There are a lot of things that can help you learn to breathe better. Many of which come together to form a coherent system, and once you master that system. You then master the ability to breathe effectively in the aquatic domain.
I HATE the term “freestyle” it is pointless because if you actually look at what it says, then you’ll know that it means “any way you want”. However wherever you go people assume you are going to do a Frontcrawl style stroke. Here is why it irks me so much.
