We are psyched to be in South Florida for the remainder of the summer. That means our videos have a change of venue. We’ve taken out talents to SoFlo and are joined by Dave Gibson, Head Coach of Swim Fort Lauderdale, to talk freestyle recovery.
One of the most prominent problems that coaches run into is having a swimmer that can’t finish with a good freestyle recovery. They recover short on their stroke and don’t follow through. This drill is a perfect way to correct that problem by placing a kick board between your legs and making sure to hit it on the end of each stroke.
We recommend going through the progression of a single arm, catch-up drill, and then into a full freestyle stroke. This not only helps technically with a better sweep and power correction in freestyle, but it also helps with your distance per stroke to swim more efficiently with less effort.
We look forward to shooting more videos with Dave and the whole crew at SFTL, our home pool for the summer.
