Following the low-carb, high-fat keto diet can have some desirable effects on the body. It’s been shown to accelerate weight loss, reduce seizures in children and help people manage diabetes. The keto diet will likely also affect the way your body handles a workout, though there’s some debate over whether exercising while in ketosis helps or hurts performance. Check out my interview for LiveStrong.com to learn how you may want to adjust your workouts if you go keto, how to survive the "keto flu" and other considerations when deciding whether keto is right for you.
I’ve always wanted to be one of the cool kids in the pool and do those fancy flip turns while swimming laps. Turns out, flip turns not only look cool, but they’re also super efficient allowing you to improve your speed and save valuable energy.

I was lucky enough to get a 1/1 lesson from the amazing Anne Kuenning and in this video she demonstrates how a good flip turn looks and then explains/demos the three most common flip turn mistakes.
