This is an old fine point for breaststroke, but it still needs to be reinforced frequently when teaching swimmers of all ages.

Here’s a quick option to help develop a good breaststroke kick, while at the same time, warming up the insides of the legs to avoid injury.

This is an old drill revisited due to a young swimmer posting a comment in the GoSwim app. “Tori” posted that she just learned she had “breaststroker’s knee” and was pretty unhappy about it.

This past week, I was reminded of a great hand-awareness drill from US Paralympic Resident Coach, Dave Denniston.

Obviously, this can also be a butterfly drill, but chances are you’ll feel the adjustments, or at least the ability to vary your timing more easily in breaststroke than in butterfly.
