Breaststroke kicks; supine position; arms extended forward

ADITIONAL EXERCISE for kicks, when we have troubles with holding our breath, looking underwater and bending the knees too much. During the performance we focus on:

  • knees so that they are narrower than the feet at the kick out,
  • properly wide kick out


  • extended arms and body position with hips right underneath the surface,
  • fixed head position on the surface in the body extension,
  • breathing in rythm through the mouth,
  • bringing the feet up,
  • symmetrical leg movement,
  • not bending the knees under body too much,
  • long gliding with extended legs and that heels are together after finishing the kick.
