As a newbie swimmer I had seen others using training paddles & decided to order some along with a pair of training fins. Big feet need big fins, big hands need big paddles right? Wrong. I should have gotten smaller ones until I become strong enough & have proper technique to use paddles this large. According to my swim Instructor I can injure my shoulders & after using them only a couple of times I understand.I'll probably be ordering a pair much smaller.They're well made though with lots of options for hand placement

Great Addition to any workout!
My coach recommended I try training paddles to build my pull strength. I am a swimmer who started later in life and my freestyle technique is not always the best but since I have been using these training paddles my technique, strength and endurance have all improved as well as my lap times. The paddles are easy to use, the contour forms very well to the hand and there is no slipping when adjusted correctly.

love those, but watch out for the size!
those paddles are really sweet, they are a great addition to my training making it more efficient and got me some extra motivation! I just started swimming about 2 years ago (I'm 24) for some extra work out, I go 3 times a week but I'm not super strong. I ordered the medium ones but immediately when I saw them I knew they were going to be too big. I thought for my first swim paddles I use I'd go easy on my arms and shoulders and reordered the small ones, which are perfect. I think even if you're stronger than me and are new to paddles, it's good to get smaller ones because your arms are probably not used to the extra pressure.Overall, a really really sweet training addition, a lot of fun and I feel like I'm getting better and stronger a lot faster!
Good feeling and help me a lot
Help me to improve the technique
Me: How do you like your new paddles?12 year old daughter : I love them!
Daughter loves them
Competitive swimmer. 12 year old daughter uses them at practice. Loves them. Get the small.
The smaller paddles offer another type of workout compared with the larger model. I like to use both large and small during my workouts.
They offer a great workout.
The paddles are exactly the size and shape as described. They performed well in the water and help your stroke as anticipated. Great investment for adding strength to arm and chest muscles while swimming.
I bought the medium for my 13 yr old girl. These are too big for me, let alone her. The paddles themselves are fine, just too big.

Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.
TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.
TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.
The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
