    Smoothing butterfly

    Hi,
    I've been training butterfly last year pretty much and I had lots of problems in the beginning with too much vertical movements that created all kinds of problems. I posted some of them on my thread [ame="http://forums.usms.org/showthread.php?t=15887"]Sinking hips during recovery in fly - U.S. Masters Swimming Discussion Forums[/ame]
    During last month, I did lots of shallow water "drills", I posted some videos on my blog http://blog.grkovic.com/?p=177. You're all welcome to visit it. I have the feeling that these drills taught me how to swim butterfly more relaxed and in smoother way.
    Thanks.
    - Predrag.

    O K Try to breathe on the side - like freestyle. Many swimmers like this . It keeps your head down.
