Now I am going to show you the butterfly stroke. You know that's my favorite and kind of my best, but it's the hardest. It would be very hard to execute if you are not really good. The first thing to remember in butterfly is it's all about this --
Your hands over here, you are always looking at diagonal down, 45 degrees down, pulling. You are going to pull in an S motion. Bring your body just a little bit up; the water should be right here so you can breathe. And you can bring your arms around, hands just like this, moving your hands, just like that, alright, and lay them on top of the water. It's not pulling and pulling, you want to lay them on top of the water, that's kind of you are resting periods. Your resting period is poised when you have long distance. Just like in breaststroke, you don't breaststroke here, right? You don't breaststroke here, you have already learned that. You rest, it's not really resting, but you are not moving for about a second when you are in the streamline, when you already gave it. You don't rest up here because the longer you are up here, the more your legs are going to drop, I've already told you that. You want them -- the only time you want to stop is when you are long, as when you are longer, you are faster.
Pull and right away, boom. Swing on as you pull. Pull, boom, pull boom. Remember, it's the S move. And go down to lay in a pause, just like in freestyle. When you pull, you're going to come up, you are going to put your arm in the water. And when you are doing S motion, you are going to push your hips more. And then back down, boom, boom, boom, boom. That's the bottom-line. And with the hips moving up and down in this way, it's just propelling you out of the water. So you got the best, best -- that's one more thing you got to really think about is when swimming butterfly, make sure your hips are going up and down, up and down.
And in full butterfly, make sure you are not focusing on the kick, because that's going to happen naturally when you are going like, when you are doing the little dolphin, okay. It's pretty much -- you are not going to feel it right away, it's more of a thing that you just -- if you keep working at it, in one day you are just going to feel it. You are going to feel it, you are like, oh my gosh, I got it. But for most of the time, it's just like when I get as soon as in the water, ah! I know what I'm doing. I will show it to you in the water. I always do the butterfly, and I am going to focus on this hips and --
