Swimming tip

Swimming tip

Perfect your streamlining and concentrating on your first pull. The best stroke mechanics and your best propulsive pull will always be the first pull off the wall and last one into the wall. The reason is the same as doing one arm drills, it is a lot easier to concentrate on one arm at a time then it is thinking about pulling and recovering with both arms. The streamlining part allows you to feel yourself move cleanly and fast through the water. It helps you notice when things are dragging or out of alignment that creates drag.
