Hi all,
Always struggled with this, I have put in hours of swim time recently and still seem to suck up water through my nose, always whilst underwater. Exhaling through nose seems to make it any worse.
Anyone got any suggestions ?

Thanks

Can't say I've done that unless it's a sloppy tumble turn but I've never felt I can exhale fully through just my nose. Have you tried exhaling through your mouth as well? I personally find it less 'rushed'.

I used to swim with a nose clip because I couldn't stop water going up my nose. I convinced myself it was physiological problem I had & I would always need to wear one. A coach convinced me otherwise & I managed to learn to swim without. I don't even think about it anymore, it just takes practice.

yep, exhale steadily through the mouth all the while your head is in the water...

Yes, everything I seem to try has the same outcome, water getting sucked up and a horrible burning sensation. I can cope with it for 5-600m but then feeling gassed as my breathing is affected. Thinking about getting some proper lessons, maybe someone watching me may help solve the problem.

Enjoy it.

~#*$ those fools who are fearful of water and embrace it.

Sink to the bottom of a dive pool and wait for the guard to pull you out. You’ll be fine, they’ll be freaking.

A nose clip seems the obvious solution; you'll look like a synchronised swimmer though and you'll never pass BUD/S bro.

You can block your own nose, it's a muscle you just have to learn how to use it then it can be done without even thinking about it. There are certain sounds/letters of the alphabet that activate the muscle when you make them that you can use as practice, I forget what they are but you can google them.
I have been where you are now, I know how it feels but you can learn to do it quite quickly.
