Backstroke kicks; both arms extended towards the ceiling

EXTRA EXERCISE for kicks with focus on getting the feeling for more effective movement. During the performance we focus on:

  • high frequency of the kicks,
  • extended position of the arm infront of the body


  • 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 depth of the kicks so knees get only right underneath the surface and that we make bubbles with feet.
