- Promotes rotation
- Promotes proper position and rhythm when breathing
- Promotes a strong kick
How to do it:
In a freestyle position, kick with one arm out and one at the side for six kicks, then take three strokes freestyle and repeat on the other side. The key points are to be at an angle to the water when kicking (> 45 degrees) and to look toward the bottom of the pool more, and remembering to breath out when kicking and take a breath only during the 3-stroke phase of the drill. As with all drills, this is done for technique, not time.
