A standard masters swimming lesson.
We were trying to associate a high elbow, early catch in freestyle. With this swimmer, we started with "front scull" with a pull buoy.
The pull buoy allows the swimmer to spend more time focusing on his catch without having to kick the legs.
The goal is to have the elbows in contact with the surface of the water, and held in front, or ahead of the shoulders. The hands should be sweeping back and forth, and changing the pitch to allow for a forward motion.
The swimmer should get a sense of openness from the elbows, through the underarms, and across the chest.
The goal is to carry this feeling to their freestyle swimming.
Half length of the drill, alternated with a half length of swimming freestyle.
