Strokes; flutter kicks; breathing

EXTRA EXERCISE for coordinating strokes and breathing with focus on getting the feeling for more effective movement. 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.
