SINGLE-ARM CRAWL WITH KICKBOARD
"The crawl is already hard enough, and now you want me to do it with just one arm…“
Don't panic... Treat this drill as a challenge and you will succeed, you'll see!
This drill consists in taking your kickboard and swimming by kicking your legs, just as you would to work on your legs. The difference lies in the position of the board. Instead of holding it lengthways, it will have to be used widthways.
Once you have started, you will move forward using only one arm. When the arm's aerial phase is about to come to an end, your hand moves under the board to extend the movement and prepare for the next cycle. Your head should remain raised throughout the exercise and your legs must keep kicking without stopping.
Like any good drill, it is energetic. You should of course change arms every 25 metres or 50 metres, as you see fit.
The strength of this drill is that it is like a "Swiss Army Knife" in terms of its versatility. Body alignment, propulsion, amplitude and aerial return are the technical points that will allow you to improve considerably.
Once again, this gives your core muscles and legs a serious workout so this drill is to be consumed without moderation!
