Former U.S. National Teamer and current swim coach Leila Vaziri is back this week with a new installment in her “Swim with Leila” video series.
This time around, Vaziri walks viewers through the finer details of the flip turn, focusing on a tight tuck, a quick rotation and the role of your feet in producing a fast, technically sound flip turn.
You can see these tips explained in greater detail in the video above, courtesy of Vaziri Swim on YouTube.
