1SwimChute

  • 4 parachute sizes in 1!
  • Match the power of 18″, 12″, 10″ and 8” chute
  • Easily adjusts between sizes
  • More variation in power than zipper cone chutes!
  • Wraps around medicine balls and other weights
  • Convert Medicine balls into Kettle bells for dryland
  • Easily works with any belt and tether
  • Porous design tracks straighter than normal chutes
  • Add weight into Chute and leave on pool deck for breakout training
  • Center loop allows you to daisy chain multiple chutes

Items and Kits Available:

  • 1SwimChute (chute only with 5 carabiners)
  • 1SwimChute Kit (1SwimChute, 7’ long tether, sliding buckle, 1SwimBelt)
  • Tether Float (float only)
  • Drag Tether Kit

Tether Float:

  • Slides over 1”, ¾” and ½” strap tethers
  • Super buoyant and strong (3-4x the buoyancy of normal foam floats)
  • Designed to slide back to the Chute
  • When moving the thin design ‘stands up’ to offer thinner profile between feet

Racing into Walls

    • Add 30-40 feet of sinking strap as a tether to the 1SwimChute
    • Squeeze the air out of the chute to make sure it will sink (so it won’t get tangled)
    • Swim (varying the speed) X distance to forces power into the turns
    • After a few hundred yards/meters of swimming they will be engrained to race into turns

     

Breakout Training

    • Connect the chute with any length tether (the length to target the exact point of their breakout)
    • Leave the chute on deck (with or without a sinking slam ball) so it yanks off at their breakout

Simulate Power Towers and Long Stretch Cords

  •  Connect 3-4 1swimchutes as a ‘daisy chain’ of chutes
  • Attach the first (as an 8” chute) about 10-30 feet from the swimmer
  • Attach the next chute (as 10”) about 10 feet from the first
  • Then add 1-2 more chutes (as 12” and/or 18”) every 10 feet from that second
  • This process will force swimmers to increase intensity into walls
  • This acts like a Power Tower or full length stretch cord
    • But unlike a Power Tower, you get the same increasing rate of intensity off every wall
    • (i.e no ‘free ride’ back that you get from weights, towers, and stretch cords)
      • Ex:       Where do you want them to breakout hard?
      • Ex:       When you want them to crank up pace into their walls?
      • Ex:       Where do they need to build on their underwater intensity and power?Add each chute at a distance that allows you to target increases in intensity

Hold Sinking Med Balls – Use Slam balls (slightly deflated) as weight in the water

  • Use them as kettle bells for in-water exercises (without dropping weight that crack your pool)
  • Walking on bottom – Carrying 1SwimChute with sinking med balls
  • Pulling with PVC on feet
  • Pushing with PVC pipe in hands

Hold Med Balls – flip the chute inside out to lock balls in place

    • Use in Dryland workout as a kettle bell (that won’t crack your pool deck)

Variable Drag on Feet for Pull sets:

  • Slide PVC pipe through the handle (fill pipe with insulation so it floats)
  • Hook the pipe on your feet for hard pull sets
  • Can also add a sinking med ball (slam ball) into the chute
  • Drop the chute to the floor after X distance and swim an ‘easy’ set,
    • then hook the toes after the ‘easy’ set to vary intensity through long sets

 

Variable Drag for Kick Sets

  • Slide PVC pipe through the handle (fill pipe with insulation so it floats)
  • Hold the pipe on your feet for hard pull sets
  • Can also add a sinking med ball (slam ball) into the chute
  • Can also add a 7 foot tether to pull the chute behind you instead of below you
  • Drop the chute to the floor after X distance and swim an ‘easy’ set,
    • then dive down and grab the pipe to vary intensity through long sets

 

Vertical Sculling

  • Hook PVC pipe through carabiner with chute and sinking slam ball
  • Vertically scull while holding up the weight with feet
  • Alternate vertical sculls with various pull methods for 50-100 yards
  • (dropping the chute in between swim sets or not)

 

Kickboard Resistance

  • Hook the 1SwimChute carabiner onto the front of a kickboard
  • Set up the chute to be any size depending on level of resistance needed
  • Can then drop the kickboard after X distance for an ‘easy’ distance for varying intensity

Underwater Power Development

  • Slide a PVC pipe (filled with insulation so it floats) through the carabiner
  • Add a 7 foot tether between the handle and the chute
  • Push off the wall and practice undulations with the added drag resistance
  • Drop the pipe as you breakout and explode your swim
  • Pick up the handle as you return to repeat your breakout for longer sets

 

Drag Resistance for: Catch-Up Strokes and 6 kick switch

  • Slide a PVC pipe (filled with insulation so it floats) through the carabiner
  • Swim catch up strokes, forcing the lead hand to keep the pipe steady
  • 6 Kick switch (stroke very 6 kicks with a long outsweep) – focus on power of stroke

Pull Outs/Wall Outs/Wall Ups (whatever you want to call them!)

  • Slide a PVC pipe (filled with insulation so it floats) through the carabiner
  • Add a sinking slam ball into the chute
  • Hook the pipe on your feet
  • Perform extensive pull outs on the gutter with the added weight
  • This removes the undulation advantage and focuses solely on upper body power
  • Also develop ankle power
