Freestyle Pull Video
Freestyle shoulders need strength, range of motion, and flexibility.
I find alternating between the circular sweeping arms of breaststroke develops flexibility in my shoulders helpful to my freestyle.
Maintaining a freestyle kick allows me to keep my eye gaze forward.
Freestyle with Breaststroke Pull
The outward sweep of breaststroke leads the motion, while keeping my shoulders riding high in the water.
Shoulders back, head and elbows high, elbow leads.
I carry this posture from breaststroke to freestyle.
