Swimming: Stroke Development Frontcrawl

Wow what a great website, I have found Sportplan an important tool...

DESCRIPTION

Elite Kicking Action
Alternate kick keeping in line with the body and close to the water surface. Do not kick too deep. Start the kicking action from your hip and use the whole of your leg kicking through to your feet and toes with feet and toes pointed. Never drive the kick from your knees. Knees will be slightly bent with legs and feet passing close to each other with your feet creating a small amount of turbulent white water splash. Increase the speed of kick for greater power over shorter distances by executing a six beat leg kick, (six leg kicks to every full arm cycle). The kick for distance swimmers is mainly used for balance. Always keep your hips high to the water surface.
