Swim Smart’s E(xchange)- Paddle

Courtesy of Swim Smart, a SwimSwam partner.

  • Fix dropped elbows and train early vertical forearm
  • Exchange all paddles for a variety of combinations
  • Incentivize the body to grip with the forearm
  • Ala-carte combinations available by email: [email protected]

Generating as much power as we can requires that we get as much grip on the water as we can. This is called “early vertical forearm” where the hand and forearm is oriented vertically as soon as possible to get an early and strong catch.

The problem is that most swimmers “drop” their elbow, losing grip on the water. This is because many swimmer’s bodies would rather pull their arms fast through the water, rather than anchor and pull their bodies forward. In addition, typical hand paddles do nothing to help dropped elbows since all the grip can be obtained with the hand paddle alone.

The E-Paddle uses a forearm paddle attachment with or without a hand paddle to incentivize the body to naturally want to use the forearm as an anchor. Use with the Gripper hand paddle to get the maximum effect!
