For freestyle swimming, what are some breathing techniques--especially exhaling?


Answer by  BilWitters (436)

Breathing while practicing the freestyle stroke is performed by turning your head to the side and taking a breath every other stroke. You should exhale while your face is underwater.

A helpfull tip for breathing in freestyle swimming is to time your breathing alongside your strokes. An example of this would be to exhale every 2 strokes.

Make sure that you exhale all of your air before inhaling new air, and while breathing, alternate from side to side every three strokes.

Practice this outside the pool first. Breathing in through your mouth and exhaling through your nose should help to keep water intake into your mouth. Also important, if you can establish a non-broken rythym of breathing in through your mouth and out through your nose it will help immensely.
