Have you ever wondered why some people are fast butterfly swimmers and seem to cruise past others without breaking a sweat? It’s not because they’re exceptionally fit. It’s because they’ve got the technique right by developing their stroke with drills. This video is taken from the Effortless Butterfly program and gives away one of the drills that make a powerful pull in fly.

  3. Hi Judy,

    Sorry for the late reply. The best place to find half a second in a 50 is on the start.

    Faster reaction time, underwater kick and breakout. Most people have at least 0.5 second they can drop from the improving their first 15 meters.

    Good luck to your daughter!

  5. Hi Hiba,

    Do sets where you’re holding your 200 and 400 times. For example we will do 4 sets of 4×50’s holding 200 time with about 50 seconds rest inbetween each 50.
