[Effortless Swimming] How To Develop Your Freestyle Catch


It's one of the best feelings in swimming.

When you pull in freestyle, you're holding
the water and your body moves easily

It's a skill that takes practice, but it's possible
even if you're a late starter in the sport.

This week we talk about how to develop

  • When to start the elbow bend
  • Which drill to use for developing your catch
  • Are you pulling with one lever or two?
