Swim Camp Records Shattered by 9 Year-old Swimmer

Tiburon, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2013

Somax Performance Institute and their Aadvanced Swim Camps are pleased to announce that 9 year-old beginning swimmer Lokaa Krishna just set new records for improving stroke efficiency by dropping the number of strokes required to swim a 25-yard pool length from 35 to just 12, and increasing the distance she could swim from 1 ¾ lengths to 68 lengths—both while swimming faster.

Lokaa and her family flew 30 hours from Chennai, India to San Francisco to attend a two-week Private Somax Aadvanced Swim Camp, the only swim camp that teaches parents how to teach their children advanced stroke technique using underwater frame-by-frame video analysis and exclusive Somax stroke drills.

In addition to setting a new record in stroke efficiency, Lokaa also increased her chest expansion from ¾ “ to 2 ½ “ after her Somax instructor released microfibers that were binding together the muscles of her chest. This helped Lokaa increase her vital capacity from .96 liters to 1.6 liters, an increase of 67%. Along with her more efficient stroke, this enabled Lokaa to increase the number of pool lengths she was able to swim without stopping from 1 ¾ lengths to 68 lengths—an increase of 3,785% and another swim camp record.

Somax Microfiber Reduction also increased her shoulder flexibility 266% and her hip flexibility 483%.

Microfibers are a mild type of scar tissue that form in the connective tissue between the muscles, usually as a result of old injury, illness or overuse. Swimmers with microfibers lack the flexibility to take a full breath and to swim efficiently. Since microfibers are scar tissue, they cannot be released by stretching alone. But they can be released with Microfiber Reduction, a special Somax program of connective tissue massage.

"Lokaa would not have been able to improve her breathing ranges at any other swim camp," says camp director Bob Prichard. "Since microfibers accumulate over time, her breathing restrictions would have gotten worse, affecting not only her swimming but her school work as well."

“Studies we have conducted over the past 28 years,” says Somax president Bob Prichard, “have shown us that World Record holders are much more flexible than National Record holders and also have a very different stroke. With the use of frame-by-frame daily underwater video analysis and our special set of drills, we can teach even beginning swimmers how to swim as efficiently as World Record holders. With our Microfiber Reduction program we can also improve their flexibility far beyond what stretching alone can do. Elite swimmers who have attended our camps have won 43 Gold Medals and have set 11 World Records.”

Somax Aadvanced Swim Camps are held throughout the year for swimmers of all ability levels and their parents who want to help their swimmers become successful by improving their stroke efficiency. Age-group swimmers who have completed Somax Aadvanced Swim Camps have gone on to win State and National Championships in the US and abroad.
