Butterfly – Vertical Recovery

Jenna and Ciera Fujiwara visited us from Hawaii to work with coach Gary in San Diego. Ciera has incredible shoulder flexibility allowing her to recover her arms straight above her head. Coupled with a late breath this swim technique can be the fastest way to swim butterfly with the likes of Joseph Schooling and Rikako Ikee. This swim technique isn’t for everyone as Ciera’s sister Jenna has better success with a wider/lower arm recovery. Find out what makes Ciera a perfect candidate for this swim technique and how we use swim drills to improve!
