Speedo Biofuse Finger Paddles
Speedo Biofuse Finger Paddles

The Speedo Finger Paddles Biofuse technology allows for a more organic-feeling flex and increased feel for the water. This is due, in part, to the hand paddles' softer edges. These finger paddles were designed to help swimmers become faster, stronger and more dynamic in the water by helping them focus on their stroke technique. The Aqua Sphere Ergo Flex Paddles are also full-handed paddles, but feature a flexible design for greater mobility.

The paddles are made from a combination of hard and soft materials for enhanced training performance.

Finis Agility Paddles
Finis Agility Paddles

The Finis Agility Water Paddles are ideal for those looking to develop their stroke technique. Their unique shape helps teach swimmers the correct palm position for every stroke by relying on the positive pressure of the palm throughout the stroke to keep it in place. Working for backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle or butterfly, the Finis Agility Paddles will only remain in place if the swimmer maintains an early vertical forearm position.

Finis Forearm Fulcrum
Finis Forearm Fulcrum

The uniquely styled Finis Forearm Fulcrum allows freestylers to achieve better vertical arm entry and increase their stroke's efficiency. Early Vertical Forearm, or EVF, is an essential component of a successful freestyle stroke. Keeping your elbow high and entering the water 'fingertips first' places the entire arm in optimal positioning. EVF entry helps increase efficiency and allows for a more powerful pull, leading to increases in overall speed.

Finis Freestyler Jr
Finis Freestyler Jr Swim Paddles

Designed for children aged 5-9, the Finis Freestyler Jr. Paddles produce results by accelerating the learning curve and eliminating a "clawing" or slapping action when pulling. By utilizing hand paddles early in swimming instruction, children learn to avoid a digging motion at the catch, instead learning to 'feel' their hands acting as hydroplanes in the water. Plus, the added resistance of these paddles helps young swimmers build essential shoulder and back muscles.

Swim Paddles

How Swim Paddles Work

On the most basic level, swim paddles add surface area to the hands, which increases resistance against the upper body. Paddles slip onto the hand and are typically held in place by an elastic, adjustable rubber tubing, although there are some strapless paddles that rely on correct form to stay put.

Essentially, a solid or holed slice of plastic covers the surface of the palm and allows swimmers to displace a higher amount of water as they pull. This added resistance targets the shoulders, back, and lats - demanding a higher workload from the upper body. Incorporating swim paddles into your practice results in increased muscle mass, improved stroke efficiency, and can even help fine-tune stroke mechanics.

Upper Body Conditioning

Paddles are great for building in-water strength. While working muscles out on dry-land is important (and necessary for maintaining bone density), nothing beats the swim-specific strength building that water-based training tools can deliver. And oftentimes, dry-land exercises - even those that work the same muscle groups as swimming - often have little correlation to in-water strength and speed.

Besides being an upper body conditioning powerhouse, some varieties of swim paddles help swimmers uncover flaws in their stroke. Technique paddles and finger paddles can help advanced swimmers with vertical forearm entry, hand positioning, and even breaststroke catch. They help improve the mechanics of a stroke so that your muscles memorize the correct positioning and you'll continue the good habits when swimming without the paddles.

Traditional Paddles

Traditional swim paddles are the most common style that you've probably seen around your local lap pool. They typically feature a solid plastic surface, either with or without perforations, that attaches to the hand with rubber tubing. Paddles such as the Finis Fulcrum Paddles are a perfect example of traditional swim paddle design. This style of swim paddle help build strength, promote proper form, and are suitable for swimmers of all levels.

Freestyle Paddles

These types of paddles - like the Finis Freestyler Paddles, for example - were specifically designed to help improve freestyle arm entry and catch. They help encourage a high elbow, good extension, early catch, and proper hand positioning. These paddles are ideal for anyone looking to improve the mechanics and speed of their freestyle stroke.

Technique Paddles

These specially designed devices aid your stroke in a number of different ways. The Finis Agility Paddles, for instance, don't come with straps and only stay on the hand when positioned correctly. This instant feedback helps you quickly correct hand and arm positioning for an always-perfect catch. Another widely-used paddle is the fist paddle, such as the Finis PT Paddles. Mimicking the 'fist swimming drill', these paddles take your palms out of your stroke. They too promote proper arm entry and can even assist with hip rotation.

Finger Paddles

Rather than covering the entire palm surface, finger paddles, as their name implies, cover only the fingers. These diminutive paddles are ideal for sculling drills and work well with the breaststroke and butterfly.

Forearm Fulcrums

Although not technically a "hand" paddle, forearm fulcrums teach early vertical forearm entry just as effectively as traditional paddles. Fulcrums slide over the forearm and rest on near the wrist and along the upper forearm. They are perfect for refining any stroke, increasing efficiency, and promoting proper hand, wrist, and forearm positioning.

Paddle Size: Avoid Shoulder Strain

Proper sizing is essential for swim paddle performance. A too-big paddle puts excessive strain on the upper body and can lead to strained shoulder, neck, and back muscles. Experts recommend choosing a swim paddle that increases your hand's surface by about 10%. Thankfully, most swim paddles come in a wide variety of sizes, ranging from junior sizes to extra large, in order to accommodate each and every swimmer.

If you're serious about taking your stroke speed, form and strength to the next level, then let us supplement your training with the perfect pair of swim paddles!
