Peak Performance Swim Camp Tip: Tips for a better Freestyle

Peak Performance Swim Camp Go

The term “peak performance” is defined as a state in which a person performs to their maximum ability.

Working hard in practice will only get you so far, but working hard in practice with near-perfect technique will get you all the way! Your challenge is to implement 5 elite freestyle techniques while training your hardest.

  1. Keep your head low and still when not breathing. You'll be more stable in the water.
  2. Keep the tip of your bottom goggle in the water when breathing. It will prevent you from over-breathing.
  3. Extend your arm fully when entering the water to increase your length and reach.
  4. For a stronger catch, keep your upper arm near the surface and flex your elbow joint first and your shoulder joint second.
  5. Finish your pull with a straight arm to maximize length and propulsion.

Take a look at more great swim tips to improve your technique from Peak Performance Swim Coach, Nick Baker.
