Cramps, hyperventilation, and chest pain: what to do when swimming hurts

Updated: Nov 16, 2018

Why do you get so out of breath swimming for 60 seconds? Did you know that breathing controls your physical fitness in the water. No matter how much muscle and power you have on land, your breathing can control cramp and chest pain, when managed properly.


One of the most common issues that gets brought up in swimming is how to breathe. Alot of concentration is spent on the movement and skills in the water and this often distracts from regular respiration.


Here's a great tip. Breathe as thoroughly in as you do out. Take one breathe in, as you would when you speak and breathe out in two bursts until your breathing is rhythmical and relaxed. Avoid over filing your lungs or hyperventilating.
