Over the past 5 installments, I’ve distilled freestyle down to the critical components, that when executed well, will lead to faster and easier swimming.
If you can improve in the following areas, you WILL improve your overall swimming-
Create direct propulsive arm actions
Use an effective, constant kicking action
Achieve a streamlined body posture
Maintain great timing
How do you improve these skills?
Start with the following exercises.
If you can execute these exercises with precision, and transfer those same sensations into your freestyle, your swimming will improve, quickly and dramatically.
Work hard, keep it simple, and swimming faster, easier, and better than you ever have!
