|Breaststroke like the best!|
|Around the Academy:
This is for those of you who are now able to swim quite a few lengths of breaststroke with your arms and legs working in time with each other.
To become a good competitive breaststroker you will need to undulate, which means moving up and down like a dolphin.
As well as moving forwards through the water.
This will give you the best streamlining.
Practice lifting your chest and shoulders as you pull (almost like shrugging your shoulders). Then dive forwards into a streamlined position again.
Increase the downwards kick as your legs go out and then in. Then make sure your legs come back to the surface for the streamlined stretch position
