Working with Alabama NCAA Sprint Champion Kristian Golomeev, he shared many sculling drills he performs.

Why do it:
This seemingly simple drill awakens the feeling and connection of the hands to the water, while at the same time demanding a stable core and solid body line.

How to do it:
1 - Start feet first, using your hands to propel you into the scull.
2 - Sweep both hands and and out pointing your fingers more toward the bottom to push you forward.
3 - Keep the toes pointed and core tight so the legs don't fall.

How to do it really well (the fine points):
Sure, this looks simple when Kristian does it, but it's much tougher than it looks. Keeping the legs up WITHOUT a pull buoy means you have to have a solid understanding of balance and body line with some amount of velocity.

Learning the skills necessary to go under :19 seconds in the 50 yard free also means you have to build up to some FAST sculling, sweeping the hands in the same movement at top speed.
