Spend some time swimming around to become familiar with your equipment and body position underwater.
- The ideal position is to be swimming horizontally with no equipment dangling.
- To simulate this out of the water:
- Lie facedown on the floor and...
- Lift your feet up from the knees up (90 degrees) and...
- Look forward.
- If you were doing this underwater, your arms would be hanging down and folded together.
