ButterflyEdit

The butterfly stroke is the second fastest.   Since 1956, when butterfly was accepted as a separate event and stroke, its development has progressed rapidly. In its early days, the stroke was used with a breaststroke kick by good breastroke kickers, lacking ankle flexibility. However, with the increased use of the dolphin kick and the stroke's demand for great flexibility in arms and shoulders, more and more front crawl swimmers adapted to butterfly. Also, as individual medley swimming developed, so did the butterfly stroke. The stroke calls for great flexibility, coordination and feel for the water. Attention must be paid in all the drills, !o perform the movements in such a manner that will transfer to a good fluent stroke.

Fly Klcklng Drllls:Edit

1. Using a kick-board, arms at full extended, with elbows behind end of board, kick dolphin, head up ("bounce the feet up").


2. Drill 1 with head down, raising it for a breath every second kick, and dropping it down sharply for exhalation ("Use back in movement.")   3. Kick dolphin with arms extended (no board) head up, to increase resistance and power in legs.


4. Kick dolphin face in water, breathe every second kick. (Say, "Head down and feet down as bottoms up.")


5. With arms at sides, face in water, kick dolphin, (accentuate use of back in movement.)


6. As drill 5, insist on chin pushing forward on surface for breath.


7. As drill 6, insist on quick return of head into water after breath.


Do the fly drills above.

Advanced Backstroke efforts with bent arm pulling:Edit

Don Gambril, U.S.A. Olympic coach and coach of Alabama University uses the following for practices to develop the bent-arm pull:

(a) Stand on the bottom at shallow end, arms extended downward at the sides about 12-inches from each thigh, thumbs pointing outward palms towards the shallow end wall. Push water with each hand altenately. As the water is pushed toward the shallow end, the fore arm rotates inward and the wrist snaps so the palm ends up facing away from the shallow end. This action simulates the final push phase of the arm pull.


(b) Kick down the pool on back, arms extended toward the feet and start alternate action of the hands, rotating the forearm toward the body and pushing water with the hands. Make sure the swimmer's thumbs are coming up and over on the push phase.


(c) With the left arm held in the water at an extended position over the head at the catch position kick and swim a length using right arm only and concentrate on the pattern of the movemens of drills (a) and (b).


(d) Extend the right arm at the catch position over the head and kicking on back swim with the left arm.


7. A further development of the drills to establish the push phase of the Backstroke is to swim double-arm Backstroke, (i.e., start with arms extended overhead, kick Backstoke and then pull with both arms to side, and continue for length of pool).


8, Arms extended, kick Backstroke then push water through, along sides with palms at right angles. Recover arms with backs of hands together and do not start pull until hands are under water.


Have swimmers notice the movement of the body when the push is made. This exercise also is good for shoulder mobility. Ejection review Ejection, give and return

Swim skills and drills set

test and measurement

9. Swim 25 right arm, 25 double arm, 25 left arm, 25 double arm for 400 yards.

10. Using right arm only (back crawl) raising and rolling left shoulder back to develop shoulder raise rhythm in stroke.

11. As in drill l0 opposite swim and shoulder.

12. Single arm back crawl, but make a quarter arm recovery (non-sroking

arm) and raise shoulder of recovery arm.

13. Single arm back crawl, but make a half arm recovery.

14. Single arm swims. Develop from drills 12 and 13 for a few strokes until going into the full arm recovery. (Assists development of full stroking rhythm with shoulder lift in recovery).

15. Using variations of one arm swimming as, 3 right, 3 left, 3 full stroke, 3 right 1 left, 2 right 1 left, etc.

16. Use catch-up drills, start back flutterkick with arms extended beyond head, pull one arm through stroke and back to extended non stroking hand, which upon touch will stroke. (Assist flexibility and location of entry behind head).

From experience, catch-up drill may also develop the bad habit of stopping the stroking hand at water surface behind the head. To counter act this danger I use the following drill.

17. Back flutter kick, hands at sides, after six kicks' recover right arm and hand through the Backstroke path back to side, where upon the left arm will act.

18. Speed up this drill cutting down the delay at the legs (accelerate the direct entry of the hands in the catch position).

19. A further drill for developing the direct entry is to use the fins.

20. Using first drill for entry then opening hand for push will develop "feel" of the water in push phase.

21. Most of the drills may be performed using the usual aids.

22. Arms only drill using pull buoy.

23. Arms only with leg band around ankles (increases resistance).

24. Arms only with rubber band around ankles (further increases resistance).

25. Using paddles, pulling Backstroke.

26. Add pull buoys to drill 25.

27. Further, add rubber band around ankles (all increasing resistance).

28. Use paddle on one hand only, pulling Backstroke and kicking (to improve strength of paddle arm and hand in stroke).
