Shave Seconds Off Your Breaststroke Times In Less Than 20 Minutes Visit Effortless Form.
Perfecting breaststroke technique will not only improve your breaststroke but also give new swimmers the confidence and ability to try new strokes such as the Front crawl (Freestyle) or Butterfly. The Breaststroke is typically the most popular swim stroke among leisure swimmers and once perfected allows swimmers to enjoy swimming for a long time without tiring.
The Perfect Technique
In the following video you can see an example of a fine breaststroke technique, you can see the swimmer gliding after the kick to really get the most out of the stroke, furthermore you can get an idea of the frog kick and how the timing works with the arm stroke.
How To Swim With Perfect Technique
Breaststroke Technique can be broken down into four steps these are: The Pull, Breath, Kick and Glide.
Beginning with the Kick motion this has in itself three steps: Bend, Open and Snap. The kick motion is sometimes known as the frog kick since its resemblance to a swimming frog.
Bring your hips to the top of the water and bend legs slightly with the bottom of your feet just below the water surface. Then snap your feet together you’ll feel a great thrust of power when you perform the snap correctly this is where the majority of the power comes from. Perfect your kick by swimming with a float in order to isolate your legs and really refine your breaststroke technique until you can feel your kicks perfection. Or instead of using a float you can simply hold onto the edge of a pool just remember to focus on the bend, open and snap position.
Breaststroke Technique – The Arm Stroke
Once you have the leg kick down, you can begin working on your arms. For the arm stroke you should bring your arms together in front of you and then open your arms while bending your elbows slightly causing an outward sweep (your feel some power here) then as your arms reach out to the sides sweep them into your arm pits and bring them back down the middle.
Bring it all together!
Once you have isolated and refined your breaststroke technique regarding your arm and leg movements you should bring these together to complete your breaststroke.
Breathe with every stroke that you take and once you get comfortable with the arm and leg movement push your head up slightly as you open your arms while breathing in, then as you close your arms together and thrust them forward bring your head back underwater and breathe out.
Just remember to take it easy, and start slow. If you find it frustrating you may benefit from using effortless form: Shave Seconds Off Your Breaststroke Times In Less Than 20 Minutes

What to do once you have perfected your breaststroke technique
Once you have got your breaststroke technique perfected, I recommend moving onto another stroke which you struggle with (common strokes include the backstroke and front crawl).
