Dry land: standing; half forward bend; strokes; breathing; assisted

ADDITIONAL EXERCISE for coordinating strokes and breathing when we have troubles with coordination. During the performance we focus on:

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


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