Swim Technique – Butterfly Breathing Patterns


At The Race Club we believe that oxygen is an underrated and often misunderstood nutrient especially when it comes to breathing patterns in swimming! In our next series of videos being released on our Lane 2 membership, Head Coaches Gary Hall Sr and Devin Murphy guide a group of Race Club campers through the various options of butterfly breathing patterns and help each camper decide which option is best for them. Stay tuned to see how factors like race distance, age, gender, and ability level determine how often you should breathe in butterfly. Surprisingly, most swimmers don’t even think about their breathing pattern in butterfly or if it is the most effective. For more help, make sure you sign up for a Race Club membership or one of our many camps being held in Coronado, California or Islamorada, Florida!
