I've been talking frequently about swimming in another thread on Exercise. I thought I'd have a dedicated thread for swimming. Anyone use paddles? When I first saw them, I thought of them as cheating. But I understand they are good for developing strength. However, I'm also concerned about injury, and I read in an article they should not be used for more than 25% of your routine. Looking for advice on this. As far as crawl, and common mistakes, I found this video to be very helpful. Will post more as I find them.
