View Full Version : Butterfly Arms

November 25th, 2011, 10:38 AM
Hi All! I just recently joined Masters Swimming after a 9 year break from the pool and I am looking for some tips. In high school I was a butterfly swimmer, but drills especially the ones focusing on kicking always seemed faster than my actual swim. My high school coach told me to work on my upper body strength which helped a little. Last week my Masters coach said that my body motion was faster than my arms which was why I was better at the drills than at the swim. Can anyone give me some tips (drills or drylands) on how to improve my arm speed or was my high school coach right and its just a matter of upper body strength?

Thanks in Advance!
