Thursday 8/25/16

Masters 8/25/16



The catch is the most technical part of your stroke, and an area where small changes can lead to large improvements.

The most important thing about your catch is to take advantage of every angle. The idea is to find the angles that let you grab as much water as possible during every part of the pull. 

Your hand should enter fingers tips first. 
As the pull begins, notice that the elbow is high and fingers point toward the bottom of the pool. Try to form a straight line from the elbow through my wrist, across the palm, and all the way to the fingertips.
