Bill Dorenkott, Ohio State Head Women’s Swimming Coach has won multiple Big Ten Championships and shows you how to perform a world class freestyle turn.  The keys are to hold streamline on your back for a count of three and then utilize the swimmer’s kick, hips & core strength to transition to kicking on the side position.

The Two Drill

Also, “opening the back door,” be sure to maintain the feet shoulder width apart coming over and setting on the wall – do not bring the feet together.

14x NCAA All American at the University of Arizona, Coley Stickels, has experience training swimmers of all levels. Here you will learn an exercise that builds a powerful start by strengthening the lead leg and generating explosive motion off the block.

Jungle Gym Track Start Exercise

The athlete holds the handles of the overhead straps at his or her side and takes the track start position. Then the athlete drives forward from the forward leg and swings the trailing leg through and kicks the knee up to the chest while the straps restrain the forward motion and transfer the energy released toward an upward trajectory.

14x NCAA All American, Coley Stickels, provides athletes with a great dryland training exercise that is essential to modern swim technique and speed. This exercise is designed to develop scapular strength and increase scapular flexibility in a unique way.

Y’s & I’s

The athlete holds onto the straps connected above and while leaning backward at approximately a 30 degree angle with feet forward pulls his or her body upright by spreading the hands outward without bending the elbows. The exercise starts with the scapula fully apart and extended, and finishes with both scapula as close together as possible.
