Coach Richard Quick feels that a key component to becoming a champion butterflier is getting the body into a "plank-like" position. This position ultimately allows the tightest possible line of motion to assure that the energy of the stroke is focused forward rather than up and down. Coach Quick teaches the proper arm movement of the stroke beginning with the recovery, followed by the hand entry and pull phase of the stroke. Through an excellent drill series, demonstrated by Quick's young demonstrators, he shows how to add undulation to the stroke and incorporates the dolphin kick for timing and rhythm. Today's champions swim a tight, forward-focused butterfly and Richard Quick's unique drills series will have you swimming like a champion in no time.
