As we continue the freestyle pull session with Artyom Machekin, Coach Gary teaches a swim progression using the FINIS ISO paddles. This progression is designed to get the most out of each phase of the underwater pull. Although these drills are technical, they allow the swimmer to realize the maximal efficiency for each phase of the underwater pull. Recently Coach Gary discovered emphasizing the back end of the pull can result in total velocity even though it may decrease stroke rate.  Artyom learned this technique using dryland exercises.  After his warmup, Artyom is now learning how to pull in the pool using this swim progression.
