How do I stop The Nose Pinch?
November 15, 2005 6:07 PM Subscribe
How can I jump in a pool without holding my nose? I'm an ok swimmer, but I've kept a bad habit since childhood of holding my nose whenever I go underwater. If I really concentrate, I can do it without, but very often I end up quickly blowing out all my air (through my nose), or worse actually inhaling some water. I know this is just psychological, but I find it quite hard to do all the time. Any tips/hints on this one?
