WORK ON YOUR BREASTSTROKE PROPULSION

In breaststroke, coordination between the arms and the legs is much more important than any strength you may have. By properly coordinating your upper and lower limbs, your breaststroke will be more efficient and less tiring.

Work on your breaststroke propulsion

The technical flaw most often observed among less experienced breaststroke swimmers is that they bend their legs at the same time as they propel themselves with their arms. This type of coordination slows you down while you are trying to propel yourself. This technical paradox significantly reduces the quality of propulsion in breaststroke.

On the contrary, you should ready your legs just after pulling your body forwards with your arms. Similarly, your legs should push while your arms are extending.

This coordination of the arms and the legs, which alternately propel you forwards, will greatly improve your propulsion potential.
