Here I come with part 2 of Some Great and Simple Exercises for Backstroke Swim, Let’s Begin Fist clenched, Front crossover and Swap over Backstroke Swim Drills….
Fist Clenched: Our first drill for today’s session is “Fist Clenched”, but what is the point of swimming backstroke with clenched fist ? Swimming with Clenched Fist or holding a ball for 25-50 meters can be a helpful activity in a warm up to work on body position and forearm pulling as it isolates these components of the stroke by removing the dependence on the hand for the pull.
Front Crossovers: In this drill, you just have to describe two semicircles in front of your body crossing your arms over in front of your face. To get the best results, take a short pause after every three strokes.
Swap Over: swim the backstroke with one arm holding a pull-buoy in front of your face; as your arm swings past, swap hands and continue your stroke using the hand that was holding the pull-buoy.
So these are the over today’s 3 backstroke swim drills.
Thank you and happy learning!
