Intermediate front crawl
Around the Academy:

Step two

It is crucial that you keep your legs close together.

To keep the body in a straight line, you will need to use the long shallow kick that was described in basic frontcrawl.

Once you have got this action going try and make sure that your legs stay close to each other.

If you imagine being able to feel your big toes touching each other as they kick this should help.
