Hand & Finger Paddles
Technique and Underwater Resistance Training
Paddles are used for improving technique (with some added resistance) or for building upper body strength through added resistance. Technical paddles such as the Speedo tech or Finis Agility paddle are great for those looking to use this training aid for improved stroke quality.
Swimmers looking to increase their resistance workout should use a larger flatter paddle to increase the surface area of the hand and increase the volume of water to be moved during the pull phase of their stroke.
