Breaststroke kicks; arms sideward the body; breathing

EXTRA EXERCISE for coordinating kicks and breathing with focus on wave motion of the body. During the performance we focus on:

  • lifting the head to inhale on time,
  • lowering the head quickly and actively


  • extended arms and body position,
  • knees so that they are narrower than the feet at the kick out,
  • bringing the feet up,
  • properly wide kick out,
  • 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.
