It is important how to extend
“gliding time” for efficient freestyle. With drag-less position, you will glide further
by shifting your weight forward. It is effective to practice “Skating” drill without kicking. It also is a good practice for your “initial pull”. You will aim for 10 inches deeper from the surface
when you push off the bottom. You will pull with your hand as your body changes moving upward. You try to leave your elbow and keep your forearm vertical. You hold the water and push it back, not down. Let’s to try to find the best timing of the pull
to maximize your gliding speed.
