Of the four strokes, breaststroke is the most susceptible to drag forces. Any reduction in drag through better stroke mechanics will result in immediate improvements in speed and endurance. This comprehensive collection of over 90 drills by top swimming coaches will give you everything you need to diagnose stroke errors, hone technique and build explosive endurance.

Most elite breaststroke coaches do surprisingly little full-stroke breaststroke each practice. Instead, they use drills to allow swimmers to fully focus on pushing each aspect of the stroke to their limit without exhaustion breaking down timing. Starting with drills focusing on correct body positioning, moving outward to the pull and kick, and finally progressing to drills focusing on timing and the stroke as a whole, this video will help swimmers of all levels master the breaststroke. It will give you everything you need to:

  • Correct persistent breaststroke flaws
  • Develop efficient and sustainable speed in your breaststrokers
  • Build comfort and confidence in breaststroke for all your swimmers
  • Design breaststroke sets with variety and challenge all season long

Or, diagnose stroke flaws with resistance drills that allow swimmers to feel where their stroke is inefficient and help them make corrections
