Swimming: Frontcrawl - Technique

I can't get enough of Sportplan. It's given me back the enthusiasm...
Cornel

DESCRIPTION

Full Stroke Swimming.

The body position will be streamlined and horizontal lying flat with the face in the water looking downwards. The hips are held high with rotation of the shoulders and upper body as the hand reaches underwater to full stretch allowing more power throughout the pull. This helps the body to cut through the water in a streamlined fashion. The shoulders should remain relaxed. The hips should roll in tune with the shoulders to stop any rigid swimming another common fault is snaking of the hips. The head is central and fixed turning to the left or right to breathe. The face should be placed on the water surface with the eyebrows underwater and forehead touching the water surface. The feet should break the surface, creating some white water splash from the turbulent mix of water and air.
