What to Work on this Off Season - Bilateral breathing

The season is winding down so there's no better time to get to work on our weak points. And for many of us, bilateral breathing may be on the top of that list. For the casual swimmer or pool competitor, it may not be as important. In fact, I remember watching the Olympics a couple months ago and noticing very little if any bilateral breathing. But in triathlon and open water swimming, there ar... Read More
