Video analysis & Next Technique Aim sheets

How they help

Your stroke is individual to you.

 

My role in making an analysis of your stroke is to:

 

  • Highlight where you can improve

  • Provide direction on how to make those improvements

  • All the time using your personal style as the base

 

This is the best way to get your swimming to improve.

One type of style instruction does not suit all.

 

Even the World Record holders and Olympic Champions all have different stroke technique elements.

What they do, is to use their individual technique to create the:

  • Optimum bio-mechanical advantage for their style

  • Use the timing of their stroke to generate optimum power

  • Using these two elements, to produce a style with the lowest drag

Finding out your aims is important in this process as different techniques can produce, in Freestyle swimming

  • A high torque stroke - that suits, swimming in a pack like at times in a triathlon or surf race or choppy water that takes away momentum from your stroke

  • A higher speed potential stroke - that suits shorter distance pool swimming

  • A higher level of endurance and efficiency- that suits swimming longer distances

The Video Analysis and Next Technique Aim sheets will provide the pathway for you to swim easier, faster, more powerfully, which will provide greater enjoyment and satisfaction

is identifying technique issues when you see your technique in real time.
