BKS09 Category: Backstroke arms with body dolphin
Normal Backstroke arm strokes with a body dolphin kick.
These drills help develop the core and a strong catch but it is important to dolphin from side to side to help maintain a reasonable body rotation (which can be restricted with this drill).
BKS09-01 Backstroke with Body Dolphin
- Focus on rotating from side-to side with each stroke. Generally this is easiest with 1 kick per stroke.
BKS09-02 Add Power Bags to power up the kick
- Add Power Bags to the feet to increase cardio workout from this drill
BKS09-03 Heads up
- Hold the head above the water for half a lap before dropping the head to the water surface. This drill can improve core and stroke muscles. However, this can also strain the shoulders and should be used sparingly.
