For Coach David Marsh, fast breaststroke swimming requires balance, timing, and developing a strong kick. Beginning on deck with Olympian Mark Gangloff, Marsh shares techniques and tips for developing and understanding the breaststroke kick. In the water, Marsh begins with setting the body position for the stroke with the kick and then moves into the pull instruction, sharing a series of sculling drills that will help you develop a feel for the simplicity and efficiency involved in the ideal pull pattern for the stroke. Marsh then adds breathing and timing to the stroke while sharing invaluable tips as to how to incorporate the proper breathing timing and technique into the stroke. Like the butterfly stroke, the most successful breaststroke swimmers have adopted a style of breaststroke that is a flatter and more forward focused stroke. In this DVD, Marsh will give you the tools necessary to implement the latest innovations for fast breaststroke swimming.
