Learn diving alone is possible. Overcoming Fear - one of the components of success.
Do not try to impress others of his bravado, making the leap without being prepared for it in advance.
These "deeds" are not wanted and can lead to tragic consequences.
Jumping into the water should be preceded by ground training. It is necessary to advance work coordinating movement, make sure that you do not have a fear of heights.
The key to a successful jump into the water is a goodtrained vestibular system, the ability to control his body in the air. This is accomplished acrobatic exercises: jumping over a horse, a goat, on a series of somersaults gymnastic mats.
Remember the main phases of the jump in the water. There are only four: the approach, push, flight and entry into the water. The easiest way is considered to dismount feet from the front desk caved in, the people it is called the jump "soldier."
If you start to learn diving in the pool,it will look like this: Go to the front edge of the board, to stand in the "attention" stance. The body in this case straight, hands at his sides, his chin raised, the foot and connected parallel to each other, toes grab the edge of the board. In direct-back should be slightly bent at the knees and rapidly produce repulsion from the board in the forward direction-up.
When flying in the air should be kept uprightposture, slightly arching back, head raised. Joining the water should be at right angles to its surface without a large amount of spray. To this end, during the execution of the jump does not need to look down at his feet, and try to focus on land-based subjects.
If the exercise dismount with repulsion is not immediatelyit turns out, we can start the development of diving with recessions, ie passive downs. The initial position of the body is the same as that in the first case. Only instead of repulsion is slow slope that goes into the fall. At the moment when the head position is lower than the body, the heel should go up, feet stretched out in a straight line. Fall into the water is made at the back straight, arms extended to the water entry angle of 70-80 degrees.
If the fear of the jump yourselfovercome fails, ask for help from a more experienced colleague. At first, you can practice jumping pairs, holding hands. Jumping in pairs relieve emotional stress, and after a couple of lessons, you can easily jump into the water without assistance.
