Is it common for flutter kick to be faster on the back than on the stomach?
If so, is there a common solution to even this out?
In my particular situation, I’m trying to work my kick for 50m Freestyle and am playing around with the up-kick. Because the hips are flatter, I feel the up-kick is just breaking through the surface and grabbing air. Then upon reentry I feel less hold on the water for the down-kick.
Focusing on the bottom of the foot in Backstroke gives me better body position and it doesn’t detract from propulsion of the top of the foot. I wish I could take this dual efficiency over to Freestyle.
