|Polish your front crawl|
|Around the Academy:
The first step in the intermediate phase is improving your head position.
Now your face is in the water you can improve your swimming by getting your head in the right line.
Try looking where you are going and at the bottom of the pool at the same time.
Think of where the headlights point on a car, and do the same with your eyes.
Keep your head steady.
Roll the hips
Your front crawl will look really good if you can keep your head steady and only move it when you need to breathe.
Let your body roll a little.
If you want to swim faster you need to be more streamlined.
You can do this by letting your shoulders and hips roll slightly but stay more on your front than your side.
Stretch your arm forwards at the start of the stroke and let your shoulders and hips follow.
