Create Faster Turns with an Underwater Turn Drill!

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

2012 Olympian and 2x NCAA Champion, Tyler McGill, shares a drill that will enhance your turns.  The Underwater Turn Drill focuses on a tight tuck into the wall with great body line and posture through the turn.  The swimmer dives to the bottom, does a two hand touch, pulls the knees into the chest (faster because gravity will pull the knees) and then explode to the surface.

Building off that drill, the second drill gets swimmers to feel the origin of the kick and how it relates to their position in the water.
