Notes

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”17″ width=”940″]Back kicking is a bit different from front kicking. Again we apply only 10-20% of our energy onto our kicking and we kick from the hips extending our energy all the way down to our pointed toes however the motion is not the same

Instead of lying face down on a mattress as we do with front kick, imagine kicking a sock off your foot in a flicking motion when on your back; that is the movement we want to visualize when back kicking

In back kicking we are able to bend our knees a bit more giving us a wider range of motion underwater. Also when we finish we want our pointed toes touching the surface of the water

The easiest way to indicate if we are back kicking correctly is to feel splashing on the water surface. If there is no splashing then our feet are positioned too low into the water which will make it harder for us to maintain our horizontal position[/text_block]
