Only when the leg stroke swimming technique is developed into a robust pattern, one is ready to assemble the pieces and start learning the “Full Combination”, or breaststroke. We will start to synchronize the arm movements, learned in the A course, with the leg movement (B course). Furthermore, we’ll use the coordination exercises to understand and experience how we can create biomechanical moments in our favour, when learning how to breath while swimming in an efficient way. The objective of this course is that one can safely and independently swim for longer distances using the breaststroke (at least 50m in a row), the backstroke (100m) and swim under water (5m). Thus, learning to swim the breaststroke and backstroke with an efficient technique will be the main focus.
The Breaststroke course lays the foundation to learn one a healthy swim workout. If you would like to further improve and learn new swimming strokes, such as the front crawl (freestyle), check out the other courses below.
