ANALYSIS

Freestyle

Time key frames:

0:41 – 0:49 Your head position is quite good, nevertheless, you are taking your head out too much to breath, remember it should only come out half of the face. 

0:12 – 0:22 You are dropping your legs when you breath, try keeping a more constant kick so you can keep your legs closer to the surface.

Focus on is bringing your kick closer to the surface and focus on having your legs straighter when going up, you want your toes to touch the surface when you kick.

Try keeping less oxygen on your lungs and push your chest down so your lower body comes higher.

You can work on kick on your back, and having your toes touching the surface of the water at all times.


0:28 – 0:38 Your pull is too slow, when you finish gliding and you bend your elbow to start the pull, accelerate the pull all the way back and do it strong.


0:39 – 0:49 When your arm goes in the water, try to glide more with your arms and do not drop your arm, when your hand enters the surface, rotate and glide it as much as you can to the front,

 On the recovery phase, your shoulders seems tense, this doesn’t
allow you to keep your elbow bend and high, we recommend you to work on your shoulder flexibility and mobility: Exercises


Areas to work on, in general:

  • Work on one thing at the time. Focus on correcting your pull, then once you correct it go to the next point.
  • Be sure to practice sets like counting your strokes and reducing them so you start to have a stronger pull and grab more water.
  • Work short distances keeping the best possible technique, as you improve, increase the swimming distances without changing your technique.
