Part III: Dolphin Kick is Hard, Really Hard.

Welcome back! Thank you for being patient during our week off from our Dolphin Kick series. Last week, instead of releasing a blog on Swim Like A.

The Fine Line Between Distance Per Stroke and Stroke Rate:

For our next technique series, I decided to change things up a bit. Instead of talking about one specific piece of the pie, let’s look at the pie as a whole.

Part III: What’s the Big Toe Have to do with Freestyle Kicking?

Welcome to our last and final segment on our feet. Last week, we discussed why our two toe tests can deduct any possible restrictions in your Spinal (Fascial) line and also, what to do to “break” up these restrictions. This week, we plan on going more in depth on how these tests works and what role our […]

With the nature of sport (predominately) in the forward range of motion, most swimmers experience some sort of shoulder dysfunction within their career.
