Get a Great Pullout Drill for the Breaststroke!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Kelly Kremer, University of Minnesota head women’s coach, presents a drill that works on getting swimmers in the correct body position for a breaststroke pullout. Athletes will prepare their bodies to make a dolphin kick and practice getting their hands out and straight forward in the water.

Breaststroke Pullout

Drill Summary: Coach Kremer teaches each step of his breaststroke pullout as a progression. Swimmers first start by streamlining off the wall and separating their hands and the point where they want to initiate the dolphin kick. The next step is to actually add the dolphin kick, and finally, the last progression is to tack on the pullout at the end. It’s important to avoid doing a second dolphin kick, otherwise the swimmer could get disqualified.
