Backstroke kicks; arms sideward the body and hands under gluteus

ADDITIONAL EXERCISE for kicks. Kicks at the advanced level are not different from the kicks at the basic level. During the performance we focus on:

  • feet we need to extend and turn inwards,
  • leg extension in knees when finishing the kick,
  • appropriate amplitude and frequency of the kicks,
  • appropriate depth of the kicks so knees get only right underneath the surface and that we make bubbles with feet,
  • extended body position with hips right underneath the surface,
  • fixed head position on the surface in the body extension,
  • breathing in rythm through the mouth.
