Who should use the corsuit and how does it work?If you suffer from sinking legs, the corsuit allows you to have a tangible surface to press your lower back against to help with leveling you out.
If you swim like a snake from side to side, the long axis of the corsuit will give you a sensory feeling on your spine that you are not swimming straight.
If you train for short sprint events, you can use the corsuit for getting a constant feedback about your hip position, so you can keep them nice and flat and eliminate your kick loosing power to the sides.
If you swim butterfly over the water instead of through the water, in other words, you come up too high, the top end of the corsuit will give you a bit of a pressure on your spine to help you move your hole body instead of just raising your upper body from the water.
If you are into breaststroke, it helps to limit the arc in your back and improves your up and over motion to keep you focused on forward motion with your hips high at the surface.
If you swim and are just looking for something new to spice up your workouts, the corsuit is a wonderful tool for that. It keeps you thinking about your body position and it is something different, so all in all a good fun :).

How to put it on?

I’ve found that if you have a naturally more curved lower back, you can have it lower on your back to help you with the problem, but as long as you have an initial gap between your lower back and the corsuit, you are good to go and can strive to make your back flat against it. My suggestion would be to not spend too much time with the initial fitting of the coresuit, but adjust it as you see fit during your swims. After a while you will discover the position which brings you the most benefit.
I swim with the suit a few hundred meters at a time, trying to keep my body nicely aligned, then take it off and attempt to mimic the same feeling that I had while wearing it. Of course, you can keep it on for longer, but I would not recommend it as you do not want to start relying on the suit. It should only serve as a check up tool to make sure you are doing the right thing.

Sample corsuit workoutsHere is a short list of swimming sets you could incorporate into your corsuit training to get the most use out of the tool.
8x100 free (20 sec rest - just enough to get it off and on)
- odd - with corsuit (at your own speed while you maintain good body position)
- even - without (mimic the correct posture)
4x200 free (same as before - you can change the distance as you'd like)
6x25 free sprints with corsuit - focus on the flat hips (long rest - 3-4 mins)
6x25 free without
Don't be afraid to dive, the corsuit will not hinder you a bit.
8x25 fly with corsuit (20 sec rest)
cycle between - head under water (no breath stroke), only goggles out (no breath stroke), breath close to surface
4x25 fly without corsuit
These are just examples to get you started. Be creative and make your own sets. If you have one in particular that you like, please do share it below in the comments, so others can also benefit from it.
In addition to swimming workout routines, since the corsuit is wore around your waist, it can totally be used in a gym during your core body workouts to keep your posture true even when out of the pool.
