How do novices learn to swim?
The first step in learning to swim is to learn to breathe.
Don't use your nose to breathe when swimming. You can be without this organ at all, otherwise it's easy to choke water.
You can hold the edge of the pool on the edge of the pool for exhalation contact, exhale underwater and inhale on the water.
The technique is to exhale under the water and exhale and inhale on the water.
Generally, when learning to swim, you should hold your breath at the edge of the swimming pool and practice floating.
The whole body is off the ground and floating on the water. The whole body should be in a straight line. In the process, try your best to find balance.
Generally, learning swimming starts with breaststroke, first practicing legs and then hands.
When practicing legs, you can take a floating board and kick your legs in a circle like a frog. The instep must be lifted up, so as to produce greater thrust.
When practicing hand, you can initially tie a floating board on your waist. The hand is in a circular stroke, which is matched with your legs. When your hands are straight, you can kick your legs, and when your legs are straight, you can stroke.
After learning breaststroke, it will be easier to learn backstroke and freestyle.

do not use the swimming ring
Floating board and other auxiliary tools can be used in the process of learning swimming, but the swimming circle must not be used.

Therefore, we must overcome our psychological obstacles and don't be afraid of water before we can learn to swim.
Swimsuit - choosing a suitable swimsuit is conducive to the smooth progress of swimming.
Goggles - goggles can protect the eyes during swimming, so that swimmers can see the environment in the swimming pool more clearly.
Swimming cap - wearing a swimming cap can not only reduce the resistance during swimming, but also contribute to the cleaning of the swimming pool.
Change laundry and bath supplies - bath disinfectant is mostly contained in the water of the swimming pool, so take a bath and change into clean clothes after swimming.
preparation before swimming
Take a bath before swimming - taking a bath before swimming is conducive to cleaning the dirt on the body. Taking a bath first in summer is conducive to reducing the gap between body temperature and water temperature and reducing the discomfort when just entering the water.
Warm up before swimming - do some stretching exercises before going into the water and move your legs, otherwise it's easy to cramp in the water.
Eat before swimming, but don't be too full - swimming on an empty stomach will affect appetite and digestive function, and there will be accidents such as dizziness and fatigue during swimming.
Choose shallow water areas - novices who have just learned to swim must not pretend to be able to go to deep water areas, which is prone to drowning.
Take a companion - whether a coach or a friend, be sure to have someone who can swim with you. Don't swim alone to avoid accidents.
Don't panic when cramping and choking water - don't panic if there are signs of cramping. Go ashore in time after floating on the back, massage and other activities, and then choose whether to go into the water according to your recovery. If you choke on the water, don't panic. Stand up in the water quickly. Once your feet touch the ground, you will feel more secure.
After swimming, you need to rest for a while before eating, otherwise it will increase the burden of gastrointestinal tract and easily cause gastrointestinal diseases.
Clean your ears in time after swimming. If you get water, jump with your head tilted and jump out of the water, otherwise it is easy to cause otitis.
People with open wounds, infectious diseases, skin diseases and eye diseases should not swim;
The body is not suitable for swimming;
When swimming, it is forbidden to joke too much with your companions, especially friends with poor water quality;
Try to swim in the swimming pool with lifeguards. The risk index of outdoor swimming will be higher. If you are on the beach, you should prevent sunburn and foot stabbing.
