Basic breaststroke
Around the Academy:

Step four

Now it is time to get it all in the right order.

You will finally have cracked the basic breaststroke when you get all of the actions put together in the right order.

This is what you need to do:

  • Pull with your arms and breathe in
  • Kick your legs
  • Stretch all of your body

    Try doing this by practicing one or two strokes first and building up to a whole width.

    Remember, try to improve one bit at a time.

    Once you think you have done all of these things spend a few sessions practicing them and then have a look at Intermediate Breaststroke.
