Here is a nice video showing the working muscles in each style:

I wonder how it was made and how accurate it is.

cool clip. I love how you really use your stomach muscles in the butterfly. People think that I am crazy for all the butterfly that I do!

Surprisingly, it doesn't show the freestyle using any of the thigh muscles (all the other three do).?

Fine, but what about technique?
On the free is the kick timed correctly?
Also, I think this swimmer could benefit from dryland exercises.

Yeah didn't notice the kick timing doesn't seem right.
