Peak Performance Swim Camp Tip: Backstroke and Freestyle Pull

Peak Performance Swim Camp Backstroke Freestyle Pull

LEAN INTO BACKSTROKE AND FREESTYLE! If you want to move a heavy object, you lean into it or put your body weight into it. Leaning gives you better leverage to push a heavy object. The same concept applies in swimming. Water is extremely heavy, and the best way to move it is by leaning your body into the pulling arm as it enters the water. Using your body weight to assist significantly increases pulling strength in backstroke and freestyle. Swimming flat fails to take advantage of this proven scientific principle.

For more great tips come learn from Coach Baker at one of his Peak Performance Swim Camps, located at various locations across the United States and abroad. Coach Baker and his PEAK coaches are experts at teaching swimming techniques for beginners. They simplify the material, create an appetite for learning, and boost swimming performance. Give your child the essential skills they need to compete.
