Dry land: standing; catch up stroke

During the performance we focus on:

  • hand entry in the line of the shoulder by the same side,
  • start of the stroke with extended arm,
  • correct arm bending during the stroke,
  • finishing the stroke with forearm movement back to the body,
  • acceleration of the stroke,
  • correct body twisting where we move shoulders back and forth coordinated with the stroke,
  • extended arm when approaching the surface,
  • extended position of the stationary arm



  • fixed head position on the surface in the body extension.
