Backstroke kicks; arms sideward the body; twisting the body

ADDITIONAL EXERCISE for strokes when we have troubles with correct body twisting. During the performance we focus on:

  • 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,
  • 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,
  • distinctive lifting and lowering the shoulders.
