Dan Kutler: Hi! My name is Dan Kutler and now I am going to show you how to swim - Basic Breaststroke.
Male Speaker: So there are three parts to the breaststroke along with all the other stroke. And that is the catch, the pull and the recovery, I am going to break those down three right now. But just to give you a general a very simple visual that you can keep in your mind when you are thinking about how to move your arms in the breaststroke.
Think about creating an upside down heart every time you stroke. So lets breakdown this stoke part by part. The first part is the catch. That's where we grabbing onto the water. The second part is the pull, we pulling the water in towards us. And the third part is the recovery which I said earlier happens underneath the water. So when your arms are setting themselves up for the catch and pull phase, we reach, catch, pull; reach, catch, pull.
So those are the arms. Lets focus on the legs here. I want you to pay attention to my legs and watch my heels as they come up to my butt. Basically - you will see my toe is pointed out water. Here is the underwater shot of that same part of the kick and now we just snap our legs together, boom. Okay, we do it again. Bring those knees up, ankles to the butt and then snap the feet together, point your toes inclined forward. Just always want to remember, point those toes outward before you began that snap. So knees up, heels to butt toes out, snap, boom.
Alright. So let's talk about breathing now. Just like an all of the stokes well except from backstroke really, when you inhale or taking in air through our mouth and we exhale, we are exhaling through our nose and you are going to take a breath in and hold it as you glide, take a breathe in, hold it as you glide and then every time you lift your head to breathe you want to exhale right before you do. And you can see those bubbles coming right out of my mouth and nose there.
So it seems me seem little bit tricky with all these little different parts, so lets just think a three basic ways, three basic sections of the breaststroke that will help you kind of pull the rhythm together in you mind. So it's like basically, it's a pull, kick, glide, pull, kick, glide, pull kick, glide, pull and then touch the wall, and this is a pull down traditional way to push off the wall in the breaststroke. It's a pull, kick, glide, pull, kick, glide, pull, kick, glide, pull, kick, glide.
Dan Kutler: And that's there. That's the breaststroke. It is easy as that, okay so now that we know the breaststroke, we are going to move on to the backstroke.
