the phrase i am using to properly describe breastroke swimming to my athletes is "kick to catch" there is constant movement in the stroke cycle where you always begin the stroke in the streamline position.

what do you think?

Hey I think that workin on the position of your head and the pull- kick-glide motion is a big deal..i'm a breaststroker and that'z what i've worked on a lot..and snapping your knees and keeping your knees close together..and turns! TURNS will kill you!!

i think that all you need to mainly do is concentrate on your kick, make sure that your feet slap together at the end of a kick this gives you that extra propoltion. if yo are swimming shortcourse it is also a good idea to work on your turns! its amazing how much time you can get off by getting these faster and more smooth!! tell me if this is any help
