You can greatly improve your speed by changing your head postion. Your head position determines your body position. It’s like the driver behind the wheel of a car, it determines where it goes.
Three keys to remember about head position:
- Look down or slightly forward – This keeps your legs high in the water, reducing drag.
- Breath towards your shoulder – I see a lot of swimmers breathing forward which throws their body out of alignment. Breathe towards your shoulder and keep one goggle in the water.
- Tuck your chin in – This lengthens the back of your neck and and is the crux of freestyle head position.
