Swimming Butterfly technique. Hands, chest and knees


Butterfly swimming drills On this video we will go over some subtile
things you can improve in your butterfly technique that can help swim faster. We will focus on hands, chest and knees. The hands in swimming are like the blade of
an oar. They have to be in the right place in the
right position for maximum efficiency. In butterfly that mean starting the pull at
a wide angle. Use the glide to place your hands wider than
your shoulders. By starting the pull in a wide position you
will use bigger back muscle specially this muscle. Do this drill to get familiar with the movement. Then try doing it swimming butterfly but with
fins. The chest is important because this is where
the butterfly kick originates. It helps the hips move. Wherever the chest goes the hips will follow. Try doing this drill to get a feel for the
chest moving. You might feel like this is an exaggeration
but very good butterfliers move their chest down surprisingly deep. Try to get used to it and use it to your advantage. The knees just like the chest can be a part
of the body that gets forgotten. As I watched a lot of olympic swimmers in
slow motion I found out that they bend their knees far more than I did. I got in the pool and forced myself to bend
the knees more. It didn’t feel very comfortable but once
I watched the slow motion video it looks like I improved the stroke. Try bending your knees a little more and feel
how much stronger your kick gets. To change any part of your stroke it requires
a lot of repetition. So practice one thing at a time often and
feel the improvement. Once you dominate one thing go on to change
the next one. If you are new here and found this video helpful,
