12 minute lesson on butterfly for improvers what do you suggest?

by charlotte zanre

Hi Charlotte,

When learning any stroke it is normally important to learn/practice legs first. This is true but I feel not with butterfly. With butterfly just practicing the legs first will/could result in pain/damage to the spine. Holding a float then undulate your legs both at the same time will tell on your spine, you can do this but only for a short period of time. Instead practice legs on their own without a float with arms together and outstretched.......

There are further practices/drills on my page about butterfly use this link below. Good luck with your butterfly and if you have any more questions please get back in touch...

Thanks Dale :)
