Free swimming tutorials

First: the movement of the hands in free swimming

At first, your hands should be relaxed and your fingers together to start your movement, and then press your hand down and out as soon as it enters the water, with your fingers slightly apart. This is called ‘sensing’ the water or ‘capturing’.

If you want to improve your hand technique, you can wear water bats to help you focus on how your hand gets in and out of the water.

Second: internal scanning

Bring your hand and forearm toward the center of your body to perform the inner sweep. Use your hand as a paddle and move as much water as possible through this part of the movement, keeping your arms close under you, rather than rowing at your sides.

Third: Back Scan

In this section, press your arm in an inward and upward motion to perform a back sweep. This is the second ‘batch’ phase where you can gain speed in your movement. You will stop pulling water and start pushing it when your hand is right in the middle of your body

Fourthly: Leg kicks in free swimming

Kick with both your legs and thighs, and don’t kick through your knees Use a two-stroke kick. The two-stroke kick requires less force and is used by middle and long distance swimmers. You must kick with one leg per cycle of movement and a cycle of movement means one arm movement. Kick with one leg in conjunction with the internal sweep

Fifth: Breathing in free swimming

Move and rotate your body to the surface and inhale through your mouth. This will enable you to keep your neck and head muscles relaxed, as they can cause undue tension in your neck if you just turn your head.

Avoid putting your hand in the water directly above your head, as this slows you down and damages your style.

Don’t hit the water too hard, but follow your hand into the water by sliding your arm into it instead.

Common mistakes in freestyle swimming

  1. Raising or lowering the head in free swimming leads to an increase in resistance, as the head must be raised by an amount that allows for taking a breath only and not more.
  2. Bend the thighs and separate the knees, as this leads to a wave movement and an increase in resistance, where the bending of the knees and the breadth of the thighs must be approximately the same as the width of the shoulders, the legs are straightened and the return to the original position.
  3. Stretching with one arm stronger than the other leads to increased resistance, ineffective tensile strength, and imbalance. Focus should be placed on keeping the shoulders parallel and aligning the tensile movement between the right and left hand.
  4. Regressive movement that the rise of the hands on the surface of the water in an exaggerated manner leads to an increase in resistance and this must be avoided by focusing on extending the arms forward and down the surface
  5. The lowering of the arms to a great depth leads to diving in the shoulders, which leads to a slowdown in performance and can be fixed by focusing on the regressive movement directly below the surface of the water.
  6. Breathing Holding the breath during swimming leads to rapid fatigue and stress, as it is necessary to focus on regulating breathing by taking the breath from the mouth while pulling and leaving it through the nose in the water.
