Saan ka ba nag-aaral? Kung may pool sa school nyo, kunin mong PE swimming, that would be a good start...

Kung working ka naman na... enroll in a swimming class.

But be wary of swimming pools, pwede kang magkaroon ng ear infection dyan...

You should have no problems with the pools if they have been properly chlorinated and cleaned.

You can also try wearing a swimming cap that covers your ears - keeps the water out and also keeps your body streamlined as your hair is not in the water and getting in the way.

if you really want to learn the fast and the right way kelangan mo talaga ng swim instructor na alam ang ginagawa nya. ang tip ko naman sa mga ndi marunong magswim kelangan relax lang, the more na naging tense ang body mo the more na lulubog ka.

Hi Folks,

The best way to learn how to swim is to enroll in a swimming school. You will be taught how to float, breath, kick and arm swing. The basic course includes freestyle and threading.

Cheers

Anyone learning should also ask about side stroke - the most energy efficient of all the swimming strokes and one of the easiest to learn.

Is also the basic stroke used by lifesavers when "towing" other people with only their hands.

ganyan din ako eh..kaya kong mag freestyle and breaststroke pero takot akong mag threading. siguro ang key dyan is wag matakot para wag lumubog. ilang beses kong sinubukan pero napapagod ako sa threading kaya bumabalik ulit ako sa gilid ng pool.

hi fellow mtc members! i really cant swim and afraid if im in pool. any tips of how to condition to learn to swim?

kahit floating d ako marunung. im thinking of swim lessons but if il be too afraid baka ala dim mapuntahan dba? hhehehe

kahit mga taog d runung lumangoy tumambay na ren dito baka maging bagong group thread ito :))

Stay at the shallow end of the pool, but deep enough for you to be completely submerged while squatting. Learn to "breathe" by gently blowing bubbles through your nose and mouth each time you squat, while inhaling when you are above the water. Once you get used to it, try to stay underwater for longer periods. When you are comfortable with this, lengthen your body facedown as you hold your breath. Once completely relaxed, you will find your body gradually aligning with the surface and you are floating. Do the breathing exercise by turning your head to the side, exposing your nose and mouth above the water in order to inhale, then blowing bubbles as you turn it facedown. You may also try floating on your back with your outstretched body, maintaining a straight posture parallel to the surface. You will be breathing as you normally would when out of the water in this position. Gradually move to the deeper end of the pool. If you feel that you are about to sink while upright, do any of the floating positions as you paddle your way to the gutter while applying the breathing technique. Before long, you will find that you are actually swimming. You may learn the correct form for swimming strokes from a coach or an experienced swimmer.

just think of it this way, even if you are overweight, chubby, fatty, cholesterelized body you won't sink at all. the bouyancy of all human forms is always 1, meaning we tend to float...lulubog talaga kayo kapag nag struggle kayo hahahaha
