FLS01 Category: 3/3/3 drill (GIF)(Full Video Link)


Full butterfly kick with 3 right, 3 left, and 3 dual arm strokes.  Can also add a Snorkel to this drill to help train a more stable head position.


The 3/3/3 drill (or 2/2/2) allows more focus on the stroke details and timing.    3/3/3 is generally preferred over 1/1/1 as the swimmer can be more relaxed and use this drill for longer distances.  This drill is critical for giving swimmers a rest while they learn proper timing, stroke mechanics, and breathing.  Best to breath on 3rd of each set.
