Salming Speed5

The successor of the initiated runner favourite – Speed 3 –has all the DNA of its predecessor and then some. The development process of the Speed 5 has been based on a light version of Salmings Natural Running SupportSystem™ which facilitates for every runner to find and stay in their natural running stride. We’ve been aiming for the initiated runners that loved the Speed 3 to recognise the lightness and responsiveness but also appreciate the new developments and technologies put into the Speed 5. The T.G.S.62%/75° technology assures that the shoe bends in exactly the right places.

The Orca Swim Scale: Progressive Swimmer

The Progressive Swimmer family is ideal for those who have just got started in triathlon or swimming. It’s the ideal solution for those swimmers who do not feel entirely comfortable in the water and are looking for a wetsuit that helps correct their technique. The Progressive Swimmer solution provides extra buoyancy for a more stable position in the water, which considerably improves performance. While flexibility is important, if a swimmer’s technique is less than perfect and the stroke is not polished, buoyancy becomes the determining factor in order to improve times. The Progressive Swimmer range includes the 3.8 and S6 models.

The Orca Swim Scale: Natural Swimmer

Orca’s Natural Swimmer range is designed specifically for swimmers who have an efficient technique with no flaws. This type of swimmer also maintains a good horizontal and elevated position in the water. With such an effective position there is no need to add extra buoyancy and this type of swimmer will benefit most from extra flexibility. By using the right materials Orca has helped triathletes achieve a sense of freedom in the water. They are also provided the necessary thermal insulation and floatability buoyancy required to make swimming even more comfortable. Orca’s Natural Swimmer line includes the Alpha and Equip wetsuits.

The Orca Swim Scale: Total Swimmer

Total swimmers make only small mistakes and this is often found in their kicking technique. A little extra buoyancy helps to solve this by raising the legs for a more effective horizontal position. Since these swimmers have no shortcomings in the upper body area they benefit most from flexibility here so their stroke remains unaltered. For this swimmer Orca offers an intermediate solution between the Progressive and Natural Swimmer models called Total Swimmer. It’s a performance-boosting combination of maximum flexibility in the upper body area, identical to that included in Natural Swimming, and maximum floatability in the lower trunk, just like that used in Progressive. Total swimmers need buoyancy combined with flexibility so each element acts on the specific area where it is needed. Total Solution includes the Predator and Sonar wetsuits.

Butterfly Swimming Drills | 3 x 3 x 3

This drill is a harder variation of the ladder drill – which we recommend you watch on our channel for technique – as you will come back to three full strokes after three with single arms. This drill breaks up the intensity of the complete full stroke, making it easier to improve your butterfly.
