Elderly people have a harder time learning to swim than children because the current “imitation” way of teaching makes it difficult for them to do exactly what the teacher wants. To swim, it is necessary to do 4 right:
– The right way: The movement must be done in the right direction, in the right direction. For example, when swimming frogs, the two legs must be bent and then kicked in an arc to the sides before squeezing together … Just like when going from Hanoi to Bac Giang, Quang Ninh, they must follow the north direction, if If you go south, you will stray to another province.
– Right time: This is the coordination of limbs so that rhythm, when the arms, when the legs, at the same time or staggered … Swimming is a rhythmic activity, is an underwater dance, not a Disorderly.
– Right strength: When hands and feet need to be strong when arms and legs need to be light In swimming movements, the body is not always tense but sometimes hands are active (erection), legs rest (need), or vice versa; sometimes these parts are above the water surface, the other parts are below the water surface …
– Right point of force: The same is using your hand to create force, but if you hit your hand on the table, the force will travel down to the table surface, irritating your hand, but if you press down on the table, the force will be transferred to the shoulder blades. In swimming, too, the destination of different forces creates different directions of motion. Because they do not know the destination of the force, many people are struggling with their limbs and limbs in a panic, wasting energy but cannot swim far.
