Lesson 8 Description

Swim - Balance

Balance in swimming is very important. Take your time in this video and pay attention to the tips that I talk about.  When I first started working on my swim balance it was really quite bad.  I was a sinker and had a lot of work to do.

The balance drills that I mention in the video were really hard for me and I found that using swim fins made the drills much easier to try.  If you use fins I caution you not to use them too long.  Use them in the beginning to get a feel for how the drill is supposed to be completed and the remove and try without fins.

The drills are:

  1. Kick on Front arms at sides
  2. Kick on Back arms at sides
  3. Kick on Sides arms at sides

Try them out and let me know how they feel.

Happy Training
