Swimming Start Progression – Part 2

In our first video in this series, Lizzi learned the 'head lift and arm' swing on dryland. Lizzi was able to master these two coupling motions using our dryland exercises. Through repeating these dryland exercises, we we're able to correct some mistakes we commonly see. We believe that taking the time to master the 3 coupling motions on dryland will lead to success on the actual starting block. Once Lizzi was comfortable with the 'head lift and arm swing' we continued onto the next equally important step in the progression. In this part 2 we cover the next swimming start progression where Lizzi learns the mechanics of the back leg kick. This is the most underutilized technique of the swimming start and can make a huge difference your swimming start!
