Swimming is not only a fun way to exercise, but it’s also a great way to burn off calories and stay in shape. However, like any form of training, it’s crucial to make sure your form is right to get the most out of your lengths.

Believe it or not, the most difficult element of the front crawl to master is your breathing. With your head quickly moving in and out of the water, it’s vital to control your breathing so you can maintain your top speed.
