Just curious…What’s the benefit of doing head-up butterfly? I’ve not seen that drill before and would appreciate any additional details about how/why to do it. Thanks!

I would think that drill is to 1)Have to kick stronger 2)Keeping your body above the surface (both go hand in hand)

Some swimmers in their fly go to deep once they enter with their arms so possibly this might be a good drill to work on that.

I would do that 50 the other way around so that the second 25 with swim regular stroke but feeling like you can stay higher in the water.
