Stroke Becomes Forced if…

So for any of you guys who have said you’re someone who maybe you’ve struggled with the second kick and or that age group somewhere that I was talking about. If your kick timing is off and the stroke becomes forced it’s normally reflected in your recovery. So, we can see this guy here, his head way out of the water and his arms are coming out at the same time, so he’s going to have to throw his arms forward with some effort to get his arms totally through recovery. As a result, on his Butterfly stroke you can see the muscles on his arms are fully contracted and it’s hard for him to do. We also have this girl down here, who’s kind of your typical late breather in Butterfly. She lifted her head too late which means that the timing of when the hands are up top versus the head being down, the ideal timing, is not going to happen. As she’s going through that recovery stroke her head is up high, if you can imagine, you’re just sitting in your chair right there and you’re lifting your head and you’re trying to throw your arms forward, that’s just a very awkward position to be in- try swimming like that.
