Maintain a High Catch Position for Your Freestyle!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Monday, December 1, 2014

8x NCAA Coach of the Year, David Marsh, provides you with the Paddle Pushing Drill. This drill essentially forces a swimmer to attain and maintain a high catch position.

Paddle Pushing Drill

This is a unique and challenging drill but it is a great sensory training drill that will let the swimmer feel what an ideal early vertical forearm position feels like when they correctly execute the challenge of the drill. The position that this drill creates makes the elbow point out while keeping the wrist down to create a “blade” for the freestyle catch.

David Marsh, 2012 US Olympic Team Assistant Coach and 12x NCAA Championship Coach at Auburn, presents the Thumper Kick drill to emphasize all of the hip muscles that are used for a powerful kick.

Thumper Kick

The Thumper Kick drill consists of the swimmer raising a leg out of the water as high as possible, then slamming it back into the water as hard as you can, alternating legs. The goal is for the swimmer to engage the glutes and using the back muscles to get the legs high out of the water.
