Try This # 3 – Smart swimming the breaststroke
- Experiment with softly RELEASING the feet into the frog position and turning the feet out
Then GO – actively push your feet back and squeeze your legs together and glide for 3 – 4 seconds. –
- in the non-propulsive phase your hips knees and feet can be brought into balance
- in the Go phase the body is propelled forward
- And is much easier on the hips and the lower back
🏊♂️Contrast this with actively pulling your feet in and pushing them straight back.
