Why would I use hand paddles when swimming?

 

Hand paddles are a plastic paddle that is secured to your hand using rubber straps when swimming to create resistance for a better upper body work out. They also keep your hand in the correct position when doing freestyle which can help with technique.

 

Hint: You want the paddle to be only slightly bigger than your hand. Too small and it will not doing anything and too large could potentially be too harsh on your upper body.
