Preparing for an Open Water swim is critical and will often present unexpected and dangerous conditions. Whether you are considering your first Triathlon, an Athlete looking for a competitive edge, or just a Sunbather going into the water on a sunny day, this How to Train for a Triathlon video series will enhance your ability to avoid and prevent danger from occurring.
We teamed up professional Triathlete and Silverline Athletic’s own Holden Comeau and LA County Lifeguard Andrew Czer as they prepare for the Venice Beach Triathlon to learn the safest and fastest way to enter the water. Learn critical open water swimming techniques such as “the bottom check”, “high stepping”, “porpoising or dolphining”, “sighting”, “bodysurfing”, as well as critical preventative measures that should be taken EVERY time you go for an Open Water Swim.
We also follow John Baltz, a first time Triathlete who is way in over his head. We find out it is equally important to know what not to do when dealing with Mother Nature.
