Swimisodes - Backstroke with Junya Koga - Head Position from The Race Club on Vimeo.

One of the most common problems in swimming is holding the head too high. In Backstroke, this swimming technique is common because it increases the pulling power and the awareness of where a swimmer’s body position is in the lane, particularly outdoors in the bright sun however elevating the head in swimming backstroke increases frontal drag, slowing the swimmer down.

Learn how to swim Backstroke the way we teach at the Race Club swim camps with proper swimming techniques demonstrated by World Champion Japanese Swimmer Junya Koga. These swim drills will certainly enhance your swim training program.

uswim, level 3, skill 5, backstroke, teaching swim lessons from ben douglas on Vimeo.

Backstroke
If your swimmer is competent at performing Pat the Dog, then the backstroke arms can be introduced. Just like Freestyle, we simplify the stroke when first teaching it and use a technique called Single-arm Backstroke. Just like Catch-up freestyle, Single-arm makes it easy for a child to understand and perform the skill that’s being asked. If they find this easy, then simply move on to traditional (Olympic) Backstroke.

Four easy steps to Backstroke:
1. Standing Single-arm
2. Single arm drills
3. Standing Olympic Backstroke
4. Olympic Backstroke

Swimisodes - Improve Butterfly Technique - Skate Drill from The Race Club on Vimeo.

#swimisodes Learn how to improve butterfly technique with Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder Roland Schoeman and Coach Gary Hall. Butterfly is a challenging swimming stroke because it requires tremendous upper body strength and a strong kick. In order to perform great butterfly technique a swimmer not only needs great conditioning but also perfect timing. Good swimming technique for fly also requires minimizing the frontal drag forces that are so overpowering to all swimmers.

Frontal drag in the butterfly increases significantly when the front breath is taken, caused by a shift from a horizontal to a more vertical body position in the water. The more vertical the body, the greater the frontal drag force. To make matters worse, the breath occurs during the fastest point in the stroke cycle, when the body can be travelling at nearly 7 miles per hour in elite butterflyers, faster than any other stroke including Freestyle.
To lessen the frontal drag in butterfly, Roland demonstrates in this Swimisode one our favorite swim drills at The Race Club, the butterfly skate drill. With this important swim drill, swimmers can learn to keep their shoulders lower and elevate more with their necks to get the breath, resulting in a faster and easier butterfly technique.
