View Full Version : Recovery to Catch drills?

Hi all,

I've been noticing a bit of a dead spot out in front of my freestyle stroke and am wondering if there are any drills to help me speed up the transition from the recovery to the catch/pull.

There will be all kinds of drills posted to do this. I hate drills have a coach show you what to do.

Yeah, I tried using the "search" feature, but couldn't come up with the right combination of words to get me to what I was looking for.:worms::frustrated:

I also hate drills, but I currently don't have access to a coach with much experience, so I thought I'd take a stab at fixing it myself.

I'll look into getting video of a couple laps. It might be my imagination.
