Get Better at Kicking Underwater!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Thursday, October 1, 2015

Feel like you’re losing time with an underwhelming underwater kick? Learn a great drill from Olympic and World Championship gold medalist, Claire Donahue, that will tighten up the streamline and work on increasing speed while swimming underwater.

Wave Kick Drill

Drill Summary: Swimmers push off from the wall and begin kicking underwater using big, slow kicks. As they keep swimming, they should gradually increase the speed of their kicks until they are at competition speed. Note that while the speed of the kicks should grow, the size of the kicks should stay about the same. Focus on accelerating through the surface of the water.
