stroke theory

It has been a real treat to get some consistent one on one swim coaching with my group on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I have really been able sit down and think about stroke flaws and correction methods. My process with stroke correction has been grounded on the foundation that the number one priority for efficient movement through the water is understanding and 'feeling' your position. Following this you must understand how your pull effects your body position, specifically your arm movement from reach to hip drives your rotation and does not impede forward movement. Every day that I coach I'm able to expand my repertoire; I have begun to see the elements of 'stoke'. I truly believe that these two elements are what is needed to bring about major change.

Book tour soon to follow!
