Part B – Frontcrawl Continuous

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”17″ width=”940″]In order to save energy and perform continuous frontcrawl for long periods of time we can refine our arms for more efficiency

As your arm reaches the 12 o clock position (or is facing the cieling) bend your elbow and cut into the water like a knife at a 45 degree angle

As you slice into the water straighten your arm out by curving upwards towards the surface of the water reaching forwards as much as you can

In order to make a proper incision into the water our arm must start off really high before bending. The key is to expose your armpit to the side and tilt your body slightly to the other side in order assist with the exposure

As you expose your armpit you’ll notice that your shoulder will rise as well with the other shoulder sinking. Shoulders are never even during frontcrawl with one slightly higher than the other creating a rocking side to side motion

Your goal now is to swim from one end of the pool to the other without stopping or assistance ( =1 lap). If your pool has a deep end I recommend wearing a floatation belt for safety
