Video Example: Quick Tempo

This guy is a completely different stroke. He’s also much bigger in length, and also with, but he’s got a smaller pull in general than she does. He has a quicker tempo when he’s swimming fast. So for me, when I look at him, some of the main things I noticed are that his elbows are way too far behind his body. And so what that’s doing is, hold on real quick, When he’s here and his elbows are behind his eyes he can’t see them. So when your elbows are back you’re using like a, like a dumbbell row in the gym, you’re using your back muscles and a lot of your lats which Breaststroke pull we want to use more of our chest. We want to be pulling in like a dumbbell chest fly in the weight room. So when your elbows too far back, you’re switching the muscle groups that are working for you in the pull. So, he’s coming just a little bit too far behind his body because there’s no way right there even if his head was in the water, that he could see his elbows because they’re back behind his sides. So that was one of the first things I noticed, and then for him when he recovers. You can see how he recovers under the water. He’s got a straight line that looks beautiful right now. But as he goes forward. He’s opening up the palms towards the sky, kind of like he’s holding like a bowl of soup but his hands. So then he has to recover and flip those palms down right at the very end. He saw that little movement here from there to here, where the hands that have to flip down. So, easy way to correct that, just to make sure that you keep the hands together and the palms facing more down and up through the recoveries, you don’t have to have that little small minute movement at the very, very end.
