Swim Technique: Swim Technique - Improper Hand placement - Before Changes

March 30, 2018

Here you can see the major problem on Jessica’s stroke which is the hand placement . Because of a bad habit of trying to “extend” the stroke, she end up bending the wrist positioning the hand up causing a “braking” force due to drag increase and inability to set proper catch (first she presses water down losing first 1/3 of the catch force) . Second issue is arms placed to close to middle line causing imbalance of the body and over rotation.
