SOME SWIMMING TIPS

Did you know that a solid flutter kick with your freestyle stroke will help you become a better swimmer overall! Some ways it can help are:
- Added propulsion. The faster the kick, the faster you can swim!
- Improves body position in the water
- Adds power to your arm pull

Think about adding an extra 15 - 20 minutes of just kicking to your swim workout everyday in order to improve your kick! We suggest to start with four laps of kicking on your front with flutter board stretched in front of you, and four laps of flutter kick with the flutter board either on your chest, or to to make it even harder hold the flutter board stretched over your head.

We are going to try to add swimming tips and tricks to try in our weekly blog for the month of August. If there is anything specific you'd like to see more of feel free to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know.
