The Benefits of Using a Nose Clip While Swimming
While plugging your nose might seem like the last thing you want to do when you are already gasping and huffing for air while at the pool, the nose clip can do some pretty cool stuff for your swimming.
After all, they can:
Stop water from going up your nose.
This can happen in a few different instances: when you aren’t exhaling properly during a flip turn, while swimming backstroke, and as I’ve experienced on more times than I care to admit, when wearing a snorkel.
A nose clip is particularly beneficial as a piece of swimming equipment for beginners as it helps you with breath control, something that a lot of newbie swimmers struggle with as they learn to work out breathing patterns and doing a flip turn without water streaming up their nose.
For snorkel use.
When I first started out using a swimmer’s snorkel in practice things didn’t always go very smoothly. I struggled purging the water properly, and when I was tired water would often leak into my nostrils because I was too fatigued to maintain proper air pressure in my face holes.
The result was usually getting a fair amount of water up my nose and into my sinuses.
When this happens you end up sneezing and sniffling usually for the rest of the day while the chlorinated water runs its course.
Putting a nose clip and a snorkel on at once can be a little nerve-wracking for the first timer, so ease into using both pieces of swim equipment at the same time by beginning with floating in the pool, swimming, and eventually graduating to doing flip turns.
Nose clips make it easier to extend your underwater dolphin kicking off the walls.
Everyone wants a faster underwater dolphin kick—but there’s a reason so few swimmers master it: holding your breath repeatedly for enough time to get enough reps to improve is difficult.
A nose clip will help you hold your breath (avoiding oxygen from leaking out your nostrils when on your back), and even help make the transition into your breakout smoother.
As head coach of the University of Wisconsin Badgers swim program, Whitney Hite asks his swimmers to perform eight dolphin kicks off every single wall in swim practice and in competition.
Very good one and serves the purpose.
