Sometimes we’re so caught up in the hard training of swimming, we forget to just experience the water.
Here’s another twist on combining two strokes into one drill to keep the mind firing on all cylinders.
Here’s a simple aspect you can add to any set to give you some insight on what you actually know about your stroke.
Keeping your body narrow on freestyle makes hydrodynamic sense, but how narrow IS narrow?
Here’s a fun way to use the FINIS Pulling Ankle Strap that can help your swimmers learn a better flutter kick.
When you’re allowed to use fins to go fast in freestyle… USE them!
Other than the freestyle pull, flutter kick is the most used skill in swimming. Some people kick well, other people kick poorly, but just about everyone kicks a little when they swim freestyle. While it sometimes takes a lot of thought to develop a good flutter kick, it’s certainly worth the time.
Developing a constant kick is very important for freestyle, but making sure it’s narrow will also be something to focus on.
When swimmers start to become more accomplished, they can start to add smaller focus points to standard drills. This is one instance of that.
Sometimes it’s a good idea to SEE what you’re doing when you’re trying to master a skill.
