We all struggle with butterfly. From beginner swimmers who are attempting to get their first few strokes down, to Olympic level athletes who are grinding fly sets at practice. Butterfly is a beast of a stroke to conquer! What better a way to conquer that stroke than to train using one of the hardest butterfly drills we know. The one arm butterfly drill.

Now there are a lot of different versions of this drill ranging from “why are you even doing that” to just plain lazy. The real difference between those versions of the one arm drill and this is that you are basically swimming butterfly normally, just using one arm. The reason you do this is that it helps with body alignment, core stability, and your overall strength and conditioning of your stroke.

The emphasis goes on having a perfectly flat back throughout this. That’s when you know you are replicating normal butterfly body position. Hey! If you can swim a 50 with this drill, it’s a walk in the park swimming normal butterfly!
