Underwater streamline is considered to be the 5th stroke of swimming! It is absolutely the fastest way for a human to move through the water – even faster than freestyle.
In this episode of Whiteboard Wednesday, we’ll take a deep dive into how you can improve your underwater dolphin kick!
Below are three fundamental concepts to improve your underwater dolphin kick:
- 2-Directional Kicking: Kicking in both ‘up’ and ‘down’ motion to engage both sides of the diaphragm.
- Train All 4 Planes: Front (FLOW), Right Side, Left Side, Back (SLOB).
- Flexibility: Focus on improving ankle mobility and building functional strength.
