6 kit bag essentials
Olympic medallist Michael Jamieson reveals the items he won't swim without ...
Great for building leg strength, balancing your strokes and timing your breathing when swimming freestyle.
Waterproof mesh kitbag

This will isolate your arms to build upper body strength.
Various shapes and sizes will add resistance. Finger paddles are good for enhancing technique.
Spare trunks and goggles
You know the clip in Macaulay Culkin's 'Home Alone', where he loses his shorts after a cannonball dive? It can happen!
