During some swim clinics last year, swim coach Sheila Taormina noticed that some swimmers were missing a key part of the stroke pattern.
Ignoring the legs and core, the fastest freestyle stroke has 3 parts:
- The high-elbow catch
- Diagonal phase (the underwater pull)
- The finish
In this video, Sheila demonstrates how to drill the diagonal phase using swim tubing.
