Improve Your Breaststroke with the Triple Threat Drill

By nate.landas - Last updated: Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Coley Stickels, 14x NCAA All-American with the University of Arizona, presents the Triple Threat Drill. This drill focuses on increasing hand speed and working on the timing and rhythm of your stroke.

Triple Threat Drill

The Triple Threat Drill starts off with the athlete pushing off the wall with a flutter kick and breaststroke arms. The head is to be above the water for the first three strokes, with the athlete continuing to flutter kick. Next the athlete goes into normal breathing breaststroke for three strokes. Coach Stickels emphasizes to maintain your tempo throughout the drill with the flutter kick.
