Breaststroke – Finishing the Kick

Breaststroke is one of the most kick-dependent strokes in swimming. In this video we take a group of campers through the details of the breaststroke kick that will help them not only reduce significant amounts of drag, but also create extra propulsion. Check out this video to learn all the secrets of a great breaststroke kick!

Undulating the Breaststroke Pullout

In this video coach Gary Hall Sr has world class breaststroker Nikola Obravac test two types of a breaststroke pullout using the velocity meter. In the first Nikola performs what he is used to by engaging a large undulalting dolphin kick before pulling the hands down. We then had Nikola perform a pullout using a small tight undualting dolphin kick prior to the pullout. Find out which is faster and by how much…. you might change you engage your dolphin kick during the breaststroke pullout.

Hip Driven Freestyle – Catch Up Drill

Coach Devin Murphy leads the Race Club camp Hip Driven Freestyle session with this ‘Catch Up’ swim drill. This classic swim drill has been taught by many different coaches for as long as we can remember. But what to focus on can make a key difference in how to execute this drill effectively.

Shoulder Driven Freestyle – Body Rotation Drill

We continue our Shoulder Driven Freestyle series with a consecutive series of drills that help you understand and ultimately master this swim technique. This first drill or ‘Body Rotation Drill’ is fundamental to learning a fast Shoulder Driven Freestyle. Learn what we look for and how we teach this critical swim drill.

6 Phases of the Freestyle Pulling Cycle-Lift Phase Part II

The Six Phases of the Freestyle Pulling Cycle

Lift Phase Part II

The following is an excerpt from our forthcoming book entitled Fundamentals of Fast Swimming

The lift caused by the pulling arm and the hand in the front quadrant occurs for two different reasons, or laws of physics. The first is the Bernoulli effect, which is what accounts for the wings of airplanes lifting the plane off of the ground.

6 Phases of the Freestyle Pulling Cycle-The Lift Phase Part I

Once the hand enters the water directly in front of the swimmer’s shoulder, the area we call the front quadrant, the period of time until the hand actually starts moving backwards in the water generating propulsion is referred to as the lift phase.

Freestyle Technique- 6 phases of the Pulling Cycle

The Six Phases of the Pulling Cycle The following article is an excerpt from the soon-to-be-released book, entitled Fundamentals of Fast Swimming, by Gary Hall Sr and Devin Murphy.

Hybrid Technique

With hybrid freestyle technique, the stroke rates range from around 70 to nearly 100 strokes per minute, overlapping some with the other two techniques.

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!
