Peak Performance Swim Camp: Breaststroke Shoot

Peak Performance Swim Camp Breaststroke

Give your breaststroke a boost! Shoot your hands directly forward, just below the surface, into full streamline. Avoid jumping the hands upward out of the water as it wastes valuable energy. Avoid angling the hands downward as it sends the body downward, increasing frontal drag, extending the length of the shoot phase, and reducing forward momentum.

Learn more from Coach Baker and his staff, who are the best at teaching swim strokes, at a Peak Performance Swim Camp located at various locations across the United States and abroad.
