Our A3 Performance Training Snorkel is the right snorkel for every swimmer. The hydrodynamic, lightweight design results in less drag which makes this snorkel ideal for all types of training. The Training Snorkel can be used for kicking with or without a board, pulling, stroke drills and all types of swim training.
The narrow tube allows for the preferred volume of air exchange. The air intake is ideal for younger swimmers and gets more challenging as the swimmer advances, increasing the swimmer’s aerobic capacity. The Training Snorkel can be used for both sprint and distance training. It is a great tool for young swimmers developing strokes and for the elite athlete looking for an edge. We use a medical grade, removable silicone mouthpiece that makes cleaning your snorkel easy.
Body position may be the most important factor of a championship stroke. The breathing motion is the most disruptive force on a swimmers stroke technique. The A3 Performance Training Snorkel allows the swimmer to adapt and maintain the perfect head and body alignment for world-class and stroke.
My favorite piece of training equipment is my A3 Training Snorkel. It helps improve my technique, my lung capacity and helps in injury prevention. -Dan Lester, Australian National Team
To help with the transition to training with a snorkel and to help perfect that head and body position, try out this beginner set. You’ll be a pro in no time!
8 x 25 NO INTERVAL, Take your time!
2 x 25 Kick on stomach, arms at side. Focus on head position and adjusting to breathing through the snorkel.
2 x 25 Kick on stomach, with arms in front. Swimmers can lightly scull or keep them still. Focus on maintaining head and body position from previous 25s, still working on adjusting to breathing through the snorkel.
2 x 25 Catch up drill-one complete arm stroke at a time, starting and finishing your stroke with both of your arms out in front. Focus on body rotation, rolling the shoulders and hips, while maintaining head position.
2 x 25 Build. Build kick and tempo, attempting a relatively normal stroke cycle. Continue to focus on maintaining the same relaxed, head down position and good body rotation.
6 x 50 NO INTERVAL, Take your time!
Descend 2 sets of 3 x 50s, second set faster than the first. Now that swimmers have adjusted to swimming and breathing with the snorkel, 50s without interval are a great opportunity for them to learn how to flipturn with the snorkel. Use these 50s to focus on maintaining a relaxed head and body position, while experimenting with speed and tempo increase. These 50s are no interval, so take the time to do the set correctly and really think about body alignment and rotation through the water.
*Note: Flipturns with the snorkel can be really challenging at first. Don’t breathe in going into the turn, and use those swimmer lungs to blow the water out of the tube at your breakout. It takes a little practice, but after a few repetitions most swimmers can figure it out!
