Awesome as your videos Coach! I just read a bunch of your Friday 5’s thank you for sharing all of them with me. I haven’t read through all of them yet but you can be certain that I will.
I’ve never done a free dive yet worth recording but I have spent to many hours to count at the surface doing freestyle.
How I swim freestyle (crawl stroke).
Arm pull: Arm and hand in full extension in front of your head.With a locked wrist you pull your arm under your body in the shape of an S. To do this you bend your elbow so that your fingertips are pointing at the bottom of the pool through your entire arm pull. Do not cross your centerline with your hand throughout your entire arm pull. Arm pull is finished with arm extended alongside your body at the surface.
Arm Recovery: You begin by bending your elbow with your arm next to your body. As your fingers break the surface of the water( wrist relaxed now) shoot your arm in front of you just above the surface of the water. Now relax your arm so you hear it slap the surface of the water. Your arm is fully relaxed before it hits the surface of the water in front of you. Arm recovery is now complete.
Kick: I flutter kick from the hip to keep legs and feet in line and level with the surface of the water to eliminate all possible drag. Knees are kept straight but not tensed. Ankles are kept plantar flexed but not tense.
Breathing: I always bilateral breathe when training. Exceptions waves and rough surf.
1 mile of continuous freestyle and you will sleep like a rock quaranteed.
Always a pleasure Renee connecting with you and your inspiration and motivation for free diving.
