Why You're Faster In A Wetsuit
Does wearing a wetsuit make you a faster swimmer?
Research by Dr. Piacentini, a leading expert in sports science finds that wetsuits:
1️⃣ Increase buoyancy: this helps maintain a streamlined body position in the water.
2️⃣ Reduce friction drag: the wetsuit’s material reduces resistance caused by the water reacting against your skin.
3️⃣ Improve stroke efficiency: Studies show wetsuits enhance stroke length, allowing you to cover more distance with each stroke.
===> The benefit obtained from correct positioning in swimming ranges between 6 and 11%.
It’s important to find the right fitting wetsuit to maximize all the above.
