How do swimmers breathe when doing the breast stroke?
Question by Starlingmama: How do swimmers breathe when doing the breast stroke?
I know they turn their head to breath with each stroke but I’ve never understood how they can inhale and exhale so quickly. Especially since the exhalation cannot be passive but must be forced against the water. I took swimming lessons once but could never breathe correctly.

Well, while they do the stroke the momentum from the stroke lifts your head up to breathe
