What kind of line do you carry into the water from your start, and how does your bodyline ultimately impact just how far you have to “swim”?
Revisiting one of the original Drill of the Week videos. This takes us way back, to working with a very specific young swimmer named Christopher. Christopher had a problem of using a straight arm backstroke pull, and through the process of trying to fix it, we came up with this little process.

I love underwater pace clocks. The ability to learn something, and remind swimmers that they should always have their eyes and mind on the time.

Building a feel for the water as well as team bonding, this drill is good for many reasons.
