HOW SHOULD I BREATHE IN THE POOL?

Q: How should I breath when I swim?
A: Breathing needs to be a continual, comfortable process when you swim. Exhaling happens under water, inhaling above water. You should not be holding your breath unless you're specifically doing breath-challenge work. You also need to have a pattern to your breathing. Some swimmers breathe every 2 strokes, every 3 strokes or every 4 strokes. The most common breathing pattern in every 2 or every 3 strokes. Triathletes should become comfortable alternate-breathing, meaning breathing on both sides.
