Head-Lead Kick on Your Back teaches correct body alignment for backstroke. Hold your hands at your sides, keep your chin tucked in, and look directly UP at the ceiling. Kick with a steady, gentle kick.

Press your head and shoulders into the water until the water touches your goggles, and your face is almost submerged.

The more you press into the water, the higher your hips will rise, and the better your body position will be.

The kick should be steady, with the legs staying long but supple. The thighs should just barely break the surface…and the feet should just barely break the surface.
