This video features Brendan Hansen – and the type of breaststroke that has helped him win three Olympic medals.
Brendan holds numerous age-group records, American Records, Olympic and World-Championships records, and he is the current World Record Holder in the 100- and 200-meter breaststroke.
In this video, we’ll slow things down so that you can see how Brendan pulls…
…how he kicks…
…how he sets a rhythm with his body…
…and how he does a dolphin kick with his underwater pullouts.
We’ll point out six specific things that Brendan does…that you can try in your own swimming.
When you add these focus points to your swimming, it’s best not to think about all of them at the same time. Try to focus on one specific thing each day.
And when you work on these techniques, it should always be in addition to what your coach is asking you to do…not in place of.
All great swimmers will tell you: Don’t be afraid to try something new. Keep searching until you find the style and technique that’s right for you.
Now let’s see what World Record Holder Brendan Hansen does…that you can do today.
