AQUA FINNING : SHORTS OR LONG FINS ? 

"Finswimming" is a technique that allows you to intensively build muscle in your thighs and glutes and sculpt your legs. The perfect equation if you want to work on your lower body! Short fins are great: light and with a short foil area (max. 5 to 10 cm longer than your foot), they also have the advantage of being flexible. Result: you gain space in your bag and it's not so heavy. Their features: better frequency and more cardio. You gain muscle, particularly in the abs and glutes. Thanks to the fins, more muscle mass is used while exercising and you expend more energy. If you want to intensify your workout use the sturdier fins(Advance Fins), they make you use more energy but give you more drag and propel you further with each kick. When you use these fins, you will want to practice regularly and go for more laps because you end up having fun and you will feel satisfied after every session.

Swimming advice: To train correctly, we recommend swimming front or back crawl for 15 minutes (perfect if you have a bad back). You can also use a kickboard held in front of you, kicking your legs from the tips of your toes while moving your entire leg from the hip, all without tensing up your body. And of course, don't forget to drink water otherwise you risk getting cramps!

IMPROVING YOUR ENDURANCE

It's often thought that long fins are just for diving. But that's not true! In the swimming pool, they give you resistance and therefore endurance. They also ease the workout on your legs and focus instead on other parts of the body, particularly the abs and glutes. The longer their foil, the more effort they require. Their features: lower frequency but more glide and speed, giving the entire lower body and the abs a complete workout. Since you have the added speed and energy your workouts will be fun and more fruitful.

Think of it this way. The fins are like extra weight on your legs that is used to add resistance to your swimming., you swim the same number of laps but you get double the workout.

Swimming advice: Finning efficiently means finning with your legs from your hips and not from your knees, while alternating swimming on your front and back to avoid getting cramps in your calf. Also, consider alternating between short and long fins to get maximum benefit!
