Breaststroke kick is important if you want to be a good breaststroker. There are a number of ways you can improve your kick in order to swim faster. They are:
- Strength training – A powerful kick requires strong legs. Squats are the best gym excercise you can do for breaststroke kick.
- Stretching – Improve flexibility in the hamstrings, gluts and hip flexors by stretching for 5 minutes a day.
- Drills – My favourite way to work on kick in the pool is to perform different kicking drills. They in include breaststroke kick on the back and hand to heel kick. Another good one is vertical kick.
In the Effortless Breaststroke program you’ll discover the exercises and drills that elite swimmers do in training to perfect their technique and increase their speed.
