I'm a sub 18minute swimmer for 1500m and a swim coach and I unilateral breath all the time. I've been told off for a number of years by coaches for doing it because of the problems it can cause later in life. What sort of sessions do you do at the minute? Are they just long sets or do you break it up into 50s, 100s, 200s etc?
after 20 lengths, i have to go unilateral. w.t.f.? i can run 20 miles in under 3 hours and centuary rides are no problem. why o why is the front crawl such a drain? i hardly use the legs at all. if i do im wasted quicker. opinions ?
