Coach David Marsh begins with a narrated full-stroke overview of the All-American technique of former Auburn great, Laura Swander. On deck, Coach Marsh then reviews the overall technique components for swimming faster breaststroke. Marsh breaks down the breaststroke kick sharing four specific drills for kick development and then progresses through 20 breaststroke drills/variations. Included in these drills are: breakdowns of the specifics for the pull phase of the stroke, timing of the stroke, drills that key upon keeping the stroke "focused forward," and drills for teaching and perfecting the pullout. Marsh reviews the stroke in its entirety and then follows with a segment: "Putting it All Together." In this segment, Marsh pulls all of the drill components into the full stroke as Swander swims a descending set of 4 x 25's from 200 pace to sprint pace while discussing the stoke aspects of each pace. Marsh concludes the DVD with a narrated telestrator breakdown analyzing a complete breaststroke stroke cycle. Throughout the video, underwater footage and slow motion replay combine to greatly enhance Marsh's exceptional instruction.
