Swimming Start Progression – Part 3

In our previous videos, Paralympian Lizzi Smith learned the 3 coupling motions of a great swimming start on dry land. It is critical to know how to perform the head lift, arm swing and leg kick before we get in the water and Lizzi was able to master each of these motions separately. In this video Lizzi gets on the blocks and begins practicing the complete swimming start. As with most Campers learning this start technique for the first time, applying these 3 coupling motions takes time and practice. As this swimming start progression video continues we break down the coupling motions individually and in a way that helps the swimmer understand how to perform each one before putting them all together.
