Underwater Pull Progression - Step 4
The most resistive position in all of swimming is the recovery of the arms and legs during the breaststroke underwater pull.
IF done without the proper timing, you can count on slowing down, or stopping... or even the dreaded GOING BACKWARDS!l. Recovering the arms and legs at the exact same time will lead to most of not all of these problems.
To practice the proper timing, go through all the steps, to the pull down.
Now, recover the arms back to streamline WITHOUT KICKING.
There will be much instinct in this with your legs, so fight the feeling of kicking too soon.
Check the bottom to make sure you're still moving forward after you extend the hands back out front.
While learning, pausing in each step before you move to the next one, allows you to think about what just happened, and what's about to happen. However, when polishing this to a competitive skill, remember that pausing too long in any position will cause you to slow down a bit.
