We wanted to share this quote from a recent SwimSwam article 10 Minutes A Day To A Faster Underwater Dolphin Kick. It highlights two of the main benefits of DragSox: “swim-specific” drag that maintains your technique, building strength for specific strokes and the sense of speed when the drag is removed.
If you have never used DragSox before I couldn’t recommend them enough. The drag they add to your legs force them to work overtime in a form of resistance that is extremely swim-specific and hard to duplicate otherwise.
And more importantly, when you take them off and swim a lap at even moderately high speed you will feel like someone strapped a jetpack to your back.
