Step four

You should be able to turn your head smoothly to breathe and hopefully you are breathing regularly.

It is now time to practice breathing in different ways.

If you are used to breathing every two strokes on your right hand side, try doing this to your left.

Better still, practice breathing every three strokes. This will help you to swim a better and faster stroke.
