Strokes; head lifted out of water

EXTRA EXERCISE for strokes with focus on getting the feeling for more effective movement. During the performance we focus on:

  • bent arm pull (the hands reach a position in front of and slightly outside the width of the shoulders)


  • fixed head position on the surface in the body extension,
  • symmetrical arms movement,
  • acceleration of the stroke,
  • finishing the stroke at the horizontal plane through the shoulders,
  • bringing arms back with less  head-on resistance,
  • long gliding with extended arms after finishing the stroke.
