Stew — I am an infantry Marine. I’ve done a couple deployments to Iraq and now that my end of enlistment is coming up I decided I wanted to give RECON a try. I’m a good runner and decent swimmer. However I have a hard time treading water for more than ten minutes. What would you recommend to help me improve?
Thank you sir any help is greatly appreciated.
You know you have to practice treading water…I do this after every swim for 5–10 minutes without hands — you have to build up to it that is all and check out egg beater kick without fins on youtube.com for a visual of how water polo guys tread water…but also try it with fins — basically swimming vertically what I call it…
