Something not quite right with your breaststroke? Looking for some breaststroke drills that will set you on the right track? You have come to the right place. Try out these basic drills and take your technique to the next level.
These breaststroke drills are taken from my book 'How To Swim Breaststroke' and they each focus on one individual part of the stroke. The 'key actions' and 'technical focus' points make improving your technique quick and easy.
Prone position with a float held under each arm
Aim: to practise and develop correct leg technique in a prone position.
Using two floats aids balance and stability and encourages correct body position whilst moving through the water.
Moving practice with a woggle held under the arms
Aim: to learn correct arm action whilst moving through the water.
The use of the woggle means that leg kicks are not required to assist motion and this then helps develop strength in the arm pull. The woggle slightly restricts arm action but not enough to negate the benefits of this exercise.
Breathing practice with woggle under the arms
Aim: to develop correct synchronisation of breathing and arm pull technique.
The woggle provides support, which enables the exercise to be done slowly at first. It also allows the swimmer to travel during the practice. Leg action can be added if necessary. Note: the woggle can restrict complete arm action.
