Swim with Snorkel_Pull Buoy_Ankle Strap.mp4
The purpose of this drill is to isolate the swim stroke and the positioning of the head. The ankle strap and pull buoy will cause the athlete to immobilize their lower body and take the kick out of the swim stroke. The snorkel will allow the athlete to focus on maintaining a steady and fixed head position when swimming. While performing freestyle swim with these tools, focus on a) maintaining a fixed head position and b) entering your hands into the water directly in front of your shoulders. An ankle strap is not required to do this drill, but it will help in taking the kick oiut of the equation for the athlete when peeforming the drill properly.
