The final part now is to combine or interchange between the front and back glide positions with a flip turn

In order to turn we must turn with our shoulders very quickly and aggressively so that we do not lose any of our forward momentum

As you are in your front glide with a kickboard, pull the kickboard towards your chest and turn aggressively onto your back placing the kickboard onto your chest then belly as the final position. Do this a few times until you are ready to move on

Next try this without a kickboard with your arms pointing outwards during the front glide and then tucked to the sides of your body in the back glide

Next start with the back glide position with your kickboard placed on your belly and then flip aggressively onto your front with the kickboard stretch in front

Finally attempt this without a kickboard where one or both arms will stretch forwards as you turn from back to front glide.

You will notice that front to back glide is alot faster whereas back to front slows you down more because we have not incorporated our pulling arms into the stroke just yet

Congratulations on completing all 3 lessons in Day 2. Now it’s your turn to do these exercises in the pool. Make sure you download and print out the Day 2 PDF Summary and take it with you to the pool as your action guide
