Master your technique with Arena Swim Snorkels

Arena Snorkels

Freestyle is such a simple stroke, but there are so many different aspects of the stroke that one must master to do it well. One of the more difficult aspects of the freestyle stroke for many swimmers to master is the breathing technique. Learning proper alignment for breathing is tricky in the freestyle stroke.

The bigger problem with learning the freestyle technique is when swimmers actually fear breathing in water by mistake. An animal instinct drives many swimmers to have this fear, and at first it can be difficult for many swimmers to overcome. Yet, for some reason no swimwear company has thought to release swim accessories to help swimmers get over this fear- until now.

Arena has just released swimming equipment and accessories that can assist swimmers in learning proper breathing techniques during their freestyle stroke. The Arena Swim Snorkel allows swimmers to feel how little or how much they are actually rotating their head while they are swimming. Rotating the head too much is a very common mistake in new freestyle swimmers, and this give swimmers real-time feedback on when and how much to correct the rotation of their head.

Some of you experts out there may be wondering since we are talking about breathing techniques for the freestyle stroke, how come we haven’t brought up the old-school snorkel? Arena also offers a Swim Snorkel in our wide collection of swim accessories on our website here at swimmer.com.au. Snorkels also serve as great swim accessories to let swimmers learn to focus on their swimming technique.

Working on swimming technique is one of the most difficult parts of being a swimmer, but lucky for us the top swimwear companies make interesting tools and toys to help us become the best swimmers we can be.

All About Plus-Sized Women Swimwear from the Bodylift Range of Arena Swimwear

Arena Body Lift Collection

Arena just released a brand new line of plus-sized swimwear for women. The Arena Bodylift Range is designed to offer comfort that helps curvy women feel and look amazing in the pool. The comfortable and fashionable styles of the Bodylift Range offer a wide range of features that help enhance support in the water. In this blog we’ll briefly go over the two fab styles and the high-technology features of this fresh new line of swimwear from Arena.

The Features

  1.  Adjustable Straps

Having fixed straps can make a swimming experience extremely uncomfortable. That is why Arena offers adjustable straps. With these adjustable straps, the swimmer can easily fit her swimwear straps to match the size of her chest, arms and shoulders.

  1.  Stomach Flattening Material

Using a series of lining and folds, the Bodylift Range helps keep the tummy nice and flat. This allows for graceful movement through the water, so we can think more about swimming instead of our stomachs.

  1.  High Support

The entirety of the cut swimwear from the Bodylift Range creates high support to really help control the chest. Just using under-wire and moulded cups is often not enough, so Arena created a design of swimwear that integrated all parts of the swimsuit to have an uplifting effect on the chest. This support makes athletic, fitness and recreational swimming a lot more enjoyable.

  1.  Body Shaping

The compressive and soft fabric of Arena’s plus-sized swimwear helps create a smooth and flattering look for the pool. The swimwear is made just so that there is minor compression, but it doesn't make it too tight like other inferior versions of plus-sized womens swimwear.

The Styles

Here at swimmer.com.au offer we offer two styles of the Bodylift Range of Arena swimwear. Each offers a unique look, so you can choose the style that speaks to your preferences.

The midnight black Womens Mesh Solid One Piece offers a classic design for ladies with traditional tastes. The medium cut and criss-cross straps reminds us of vintage swimwear styles that flatter the shape of women’s bodies. This Mesh Solid One Piece is perfect for ladies who love to bring their sense of style to the water!

The other option for styles in the Bodylift Range of swimwear is the Womens Makimurax One Piece. This one piece features slices of rose colour on the sides and straps that compliments the luscious black of the rest of the material. The straight strap back offers a modern twist to this classic cut, and as a bonus, it makes the swimwear straps even easier to adjust. If you want something luxurious to wear to the pool, you’ll just have to try out the Womens Makimurak One Piece.

Read About the Latest Swim Technology Features for these New Arena Goggles

BlogBanner9

 

Every swimmer knows that a good pair of goggles is an absolutely essential piece of equipment for the pool. As more enhanced swim technology comes out, it becomes more difficult to sort through all the options. That is why we've taken the time to create this blog to go over the goggle technology offered by Arena goggles. The Tracks Mirrors and the Tracks Goggles both offer all of the following swim technology features.

Dual Straps vs. Single Straps

Single strap goggles are fine for casual swimmers and kids, but if you are a fitness or athletic swimmer dual straps are definitely the way to go. Dual straps provide a comfortable and secure fit that you don’t have to worry about when doing laps. With the easy-to-adjust tabs you can get just the right fit with both the Tracks Mirrors and the Tracks Goggles.

Hydrodynamic Designs

Goggles with hydrodynamic designs are meant to get you through the water with the least amount of resistance. If you are a competitive swimmer, you probably already know how much drag can impact your finishing swim time. With the smaller designs of lenses of the goggles and curved surfaces, these goggles will have you soaring through the water.

Soft Silicone Seals

Silicone is one of the most malleable materials in the world, so that is why silicone seals are perfect for swimming goggles. The silicone seals tightly across the swimmer’s face to block water from getting under the lens. With Arena’s special formula for soft silicone, this awesome technology is comfortable too!

Interchangeable Nose Bridges

Both pairs of the Arena goggles come with a pack of three different nose bridge options. Given the huge variety of shapes of noses, having a comfortable and fitting nose bridge makes wearing swimming goggles a whole lot easier.

Anti-Fog

What swimmer does not have a deep disdain for having fog on their goggles? We all know that the anti-fog feature do not last forever on any set of goggles. Starting with anti-fog lenses is a good place to start then later you can consider purchasing anti-fog spray.

UV-Protection

The skin isn't the only part of the body that sun impacts negatively; the eyes are also a very sensitive area too. With Arena goggles you can know that your eyes are protected from the harmful rains of the sun, and since there isn't such thing as sun screen for eyes this is a really good thing.

A Little Touch of Style

Last, but not least, Arena also offers a Racing Goggles Silicone Strap Kit with four different colour straps, so that you can customize your Arena swim goggles.

New Mother and Arena Athlete Therese Alshammar Recommences Training for the Olympics

Arena Goggles all ages

Arena Athlete Therese Alshammar- Olympian, mother and all around awesome lady- returned to training for the Olympics after giving birth to her son Fred. She already holds the record of being the oldest women world champion in history, and she is well on her way to shattering that record again if her Olympic campaign is successful.

Since pregnancy and motherhood, Alshammar definitely has not been slacking off. She even trained up to four days before Fred’s arrival, and she returned to light training just three months after his birth. Over the course of the pregnancy she gained 20 kg of weight, but she is already well on her way to shedding that off. We have confidence in the determination of Alshammar, so it will be no surprise to us if she ends up in the Olympics again, even at the age of 39.

When asked by Arena interviewers whether she needed to train harder after pregnancy, this is the answer she gave:

“Not necessarily more time, but you have to use more imagination; you have to be more creative in how you keep your body at peak performance. One of my beliefs is that you have to change something each season to keep it at its optimum peak powers.”

As for her diet, Alshammar says she has a sustained a rule that anything goes before and after exercise. She does incorporate carbs and fruit, but she also has a special affinity for dark chocolate.

For now, everyday Fred, Alshammar and the father go to Alshammar’s training sessions as a family. Perhaps Fred will be the next Olympian in Alshammar’s now two generation Olympian family- Alshammar’s mother was H Btitt Smedh, a 100m breastroke finalist in the 1972 Olympics.  Between genetics and exposure, Fred is already off to a good start.

By supporting the brands of athletes who inspire us, we are not only investing in high quality swim gear, but we are also investing in the success of the athlete. If you’d like to give a little extra support to Alshammar perhaps check out the Cobra Mirror Goggles, 3D Race Caps, Spider Jr Goggles (Navy?citronella) or the Spider Jr. Goggles (Violet Pink).

Arena Athlete James Magnussen Opens up about his Race Priorities

James Magnussen

At national titles at Brisbane in April 2014, Arena athlete, James Magnussen was shockingly defeated by Cameron McEvoy in the 100 metre freestyle final. In an interview with smh.com.au, Magnussen discussed how his ambitions for beating the world record altered his performance for the worse.

"I've got this mindset where I start chasing that world record and I think to give myself a chance of getting it. I just go out too hard and the rest is history.

... I botched my start and botched my turn and they're pretty simple areas to get right; so I self-destructed a bit but we have plenty of time to (the Commonwealth Games)," Magnussen told smh.com.au.

I think most competitive swimmers can relate to this story. Often it is the things that we practice one million times that we end up messing up at swim competitions, and even the smallest mistake can mean not being first to touch out in the fierce competitive world of swimming.

McEvoy, who took home the victory, claimed to be more competing against himself. McEvoy told smh:

"We were like, alright we can work on this, this and this; try to beat my own time leading up to the Commonwealth Games, that's what swimming, or sport, really, is about. You're always trying to best yourself every time you set out to whatever competition you're doing."

There definitely is a lesson to be learned from this story. Rather than competing against some abstract idea, whether it be to beat world records, shoot for the Olympics or impress that cute girl at the meet, it is always better to just focus on doing our personal best in the pool. In the end, during swim meets it is all about your own personal performance in the pool, so focusing on anything outside of your own body is just a distraction.

Part of being able to focus on doing our best is having high quality swimwear that doesn’t distract us. That is why for mens swimwear and boys swimwear from Arena we really liked the straight forward athletic cut of their new line of swimwear. The design of these athletic jammers feature a snug fit with a no frills print that will let you keep your focus in the water. If simple and high quality swimwear seems to fit the bill for your swimming needs check out the Arena Board Mens Jammers and the Arena Board Boys Jammers.
