Swimming Drill Demonstration

Description

Elite Kicking Action
Steady alternating kick in line with the body close to the water surface. The kick starts from the hips and using the whole of your leg kick through to the toes. Knees kept underwater passing close to each other with feet and toes pointed. Do not start to drive the kick from the knee, (a common mistake which will develop poor propulsion). Feet and toes should just break the water surface creating some turbulent white water splash, producing speed and stability from the lower body. Do not to kick too deep or too shallow, the depth of the kicking action should be consistent and comfortable, alternating the feet to little more than the depth of your chest.
