Around the Academy:

Step four

Once you have mastered the arms you can increase your speed by bending your elbow and pushing your hand towards your feet.

Try not to waste any power at the end of the stroke, keeping your hand going until it gets to the top of your leg.

Moving your hand over the water is important as well.

Lift your arm out of the water and try to control it as it goes back to the starting point.

Let your hand relax.
