Words from Coach Mark

Swim Tip - Can You "Feel the Water"?

What sensations do you feel when your hands go through the water?

Are you manipulating water efficiently?

1. Feel your hands.

Try inserting your hands into the oncoming flow instead of "attacking" the water and trying to push the water directly backwards.

2. Wrap the Flow.

After feeling the oncoming flow – wrap the flow around the arm by gradually rotating your hand and forearm.  The maximum elbow bend should reach approximately 90 degrees and should be comfortable to you- If you need to- adjust the amount of elbow bent to suit your style.

3. Think momentum.

Your desired stroke timing depends to a great extent on your speed. Use your entry hand as a guiding sensory to judge the desired timing of your stroke.

Good Luck!
