Butterfly Velocity Meter – Tim Delehanty

The ideal butterfly technique for Masters swimmers depends on many factors, including the race distance, conditioning, flexibility and kicking strength. In this discussion about Masters swimmer Tim Delehanty’s butterfly velocity meter analysis, we describe some of the swimming techniques that Tim does well and not so well. Learn from watching this educational video to improve your own butterfly swim technique.

Swimming Start Progression – Part 1

In the fast-approaching 2021 Paralympic and Olympic games in Tokyo, Paralympian Lizzi Smith will be swimming several sprint events. Lizzi recently trained with us in San Diego in order to improve her start for the upcoming Tokyo Games. We’ve had tremendous success teaching our athletes what we call the ‘Brad Tandy’ start that incorporate 3 distinct coupling motions including the head, arms and legs. Lizzi has one arm and was using a ‘weight forward’ swimming start not utilizing her upper body much at all. Because of Lizzi’s disability we modified a slightly wider stance with the feet to compensate for any balance issues. Other than this slight modification, this is the same swimming start progression we teach to an age grouper, masters or professional so follow along through this series of dryland and swim drills and you too could be flying off the blocks on your start!

Masters Swimming – Finding A Faster Flip Turn

Most coaches teach swimmers to ‘glide’ off the wall before engaging the first dolphin kick which we believe is not the fastest and not surprisingly we see most swimmers doing this swim technique. U.S. Masters Swimmer Masako worked with us in order to improve her freestyle flip turns. Tune into this lesson that applies to not only many Masters Swimmers but also age groupers. We take Masako through a series of tests that can help determine how many and when to take dolphin kicks, if any at all.

AQUA NOTES

Losing the Franchise Part I

Coach Doc Counsilman tapped his foot impatiently on the asphalt of the cul-de-sac outside of Royer Pool in Bloomington, Indiana. He was standing next to one of the two remaining I.U. station wagons with the motors running, looking up at the sky at the dark, swirling clouds above closing in.

Butterfly Technique-The Second Down Kick

The Second down kick Butterfly Technique
One of the most fascinating aspects of our sport is that when it comes to technique, swimming is not a one-size-fits-all sport.

Two New Metrics to Evaluate Breaststroke

Two new Metrics to evaluate Breaststroke

Adam Peaty and Lilly King have rewritten the rules on breaststroke technique. They both pull widely, elevate the shoulders extremely high, crash down hard with the upper body and head, which is timed exquisitely with the propulsion from their kicks.

Hybrid Freestyle Technique: Who should use it and when?

The Hybrid freestyle technique, also known as the loping or galloping freestyle, is a technique that has been used by some of the most recognized names in swimming; Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, Katie Ledecky and Jason Lezak, just to name a few. 

USMS OFFICIAL PARTNERSHIP

Understanding the science behind the swim techniques the fastest swimmers in the world use is necessary in order to become the best one can be. At The Race Club, we believe good swimming technique combined with the right swim training allows the swimmer to progress to the highest level of performance. However, most swimmers can benefit from more technical instruction in order to improve. Swimming technique is half of the equation toward fast swimming, yet few swimmers nor coaches spend much time on technique.

As a USMS Member, you will receive a free 2 Month Trial and 20% off the membership fee. This won’t last long!
