MP Schwimmtipps von Bob Bowman: Rückenschwimmen


MP Swim Tips by Bob Bowman – Episode Zwei

Bob Bowman ist der Trainer des erfolgreichsten olympischen Athleten aller Zeiten: Michael Phelps. Zur Zeit ist er Chefcoach in Arizona, USA, an der dortigen Universität.

Heute stellen Bob Bowman und Michael Phelps eine Technikübung für das Rückenschwimmen vor: Den “Touch and Pull”.

Beide Arme liegen in der Rückenlage am Körper, nur ein Arm zieht, bis er wieder in der kurzen Ruheposition ist, dann wird wieder mit diesem Arm gezogen. Diese Übung fördert das Gefühl für das Wasserfassen und man kann genau sehen, was die Hüften und der ganze Körper machen.
