Backstroke kicks; with fins

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 fins,
  • 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.
