Additional Uses/Tips/Support:

Use for Pull Sets

  • Restrict kicking for pull sets to be sure they focus on their pull and body balance
  • Can place an ankle in each cuff, or both feet in 1 cuff
  • Constantly mix up your pull sets to challenge the body balance, core muscles, and upper body strength

Feedback (Swimmers FEEL / Coaches SEE / Video for Self-Analysis):

  • As your feet sink, press down on your chest to help drive up your legs
  • Be sure to do pull sets without a pull buoy to help improve your core and power
  • Feel any ‘fishtail’ of your legs and use your core to stabilize your side-to-side balance

Use for Breast stroke knee control

  • Place 1 knee in each cuff (above or below knee) and swim breast stroke
  • Replaces breast kicking with buoy between thighs while allow the hips to thrust forward slightly
Feedback (Swimmers FEEL / Coaches SEE / Video for Self-Analysis):
  • Focus on catching water with the outside edge of the feet as high as possible for max power
  • Focus on whipping the feet together as you finish
  • Be sure to press the feet UP closer to the surface as you finish the whip (to minimize resistance on glide)
