Increase Arm Strength for a More Powerful Backstroke!

In this presentation Ian Pope, Australian Olympic coach, describes the “arm power zone” and proper body rotation to bring the body toward the hand.   Also, watch to see how the swimmer can utilize the “one arm press” to engage the under arm and lats to supply more muscle into the stroke.

Make sure your arm is in front of the chest during the catch phase of the backstroke. Timing is crucial for the most power.
