I wnat to join my schools varsity swim team but im a bit chubby. how can i look better in the jammers?

you know, there are some techniques that can help - including my favorite the eggbeater. its used by water polo players and synchronized swimmers to stay above the water - high above the water. once you learn it is so much more efficient. maybe do some research on that. your legs move like an eggbeater, both making inward circles with your feet flexed- your body looks like its sitting down- knees bent. try it in your chair even!

Can a human being cry underwater?

its easier to balance yourself in the water. with your arms out of the water, you have to use only your legs to support yourself. with your arms in the water, you can use those to help too. technically, you arent treading water if your head isnt above the water. what you might want to try doing is kicking your legs around the side like a frog. first kick one leg, then the other. sort of a whip-like motion. my swim coach calls these egg-beaters. its alittle easier because it pushes you out of the water, and your legs have a little time to rest inbetween kicks

Where in the world have you experienced the best dive conditions?

I'm a goalie for my high school team, so i know how you feel.
try something called "skulling". what you do is while youre treading you wave your hands in big motions with your palms facing down, almost like youre waving a really BIG hello to someone at the bottom of the pool, dont got to fast, just enough to help keep you up, if you do that, it will get easier, until, you can tread like evreyone else!! good LUCK!

Is there such a thing as allergy to swimming pool chlorine?

2.) for lifesaving I've learned another technique that is highly recommended when rescuing. = EGG BEATER.
3.) egg beater is much more effective because when you are carrying your victims they aren't bobbing up and down as you will when you tread water carrying them.
4.) egg beater, when you fully get the hang of it is EXTREMELY EASY. At first however, you'll feel as though it's more tiring than treading water, don't be tempted to go back to treading, work on the egg beater!
5.) lifeguardhome.com (very good site for lifesaving courses and info)
6.) this site will hopefully help teach you. http://www.ehow.com/how_5302_eggbeater-k...

=] Best of luck to you!
when you rescue your victim GET THEIR SHOULDERS outtaaaaaaaa the water ASAP! (for DNS) or you MAY be failing the sim right there. =] good luck!
