Swimming Hand Paddles are designed to build your strength by adding resistance to your stroke. They also encourage correct technique by forcing you into a proper pulling position.

"The Strength Paddles are one of my favorite tools that we've developed, because they basically give you the feel of the hand and the way it is when its swimming because of the raised portion under the palm of your hand. It's not a flat surface. You're actually in a much more natural position."
- Coach Bob Bowman
