    Lats get tired before out of breath

    Just had a question, for my swim times I can consistently get my 50 yard swim in 44-46 seconds and 100 yard in 1:30-1:35 but my 500 time is at a 9:38. My lats get really worn down after about 250 yards and I think that is what is decreasing my swim time. I'm a little taller so I can get a length in 3-4 strokes while staying smooth and fast but I was just wondering if there's anything I can do about more muscle endurance for my back/shoulders. Thanks in advance.

    Put up a 100Y video and there's a good chance I can tell you what's going on. I can't fix what I can't see!

    Yeah I swim on both sides and switch after each length. The breathing hasn't been much of a problem for me lately its just my back and shoulders tiring out

    are you switching sides? Are you fully exhaling and taking such a big deep inhale its a big gasp? You could focus on 200yd sprints . Also stew smith talks about hypoxic(anoxic) swimming
