Swimming strokes - Overview of Common Swimming Strokes / Styles

While one arm sweeps in the water from the forward extended position back to the hip, the other arm recovers above water from the hip back to the forward extended position.

Time your breathing to match your swimming strokes by turning your head to the side while your arm is in the recovery above water position.

As a rule, two kicks are performed per stroke cycle.

This stroke is often taught to children using fun nicknames for the parts of the movement.

The hands perform an hourglass-shaped movement in the water from the forward extended position back to the hips.

Typically, you'll breathe every two or more strokes.

It was in this year that the first national governing body, the Amateur Swimming Association, was formed.

Description: Proponents of the front crawl suggest that it should come in first since it uses a body roll and out-of-arm return that reduces drag at the shoulder level.

It was the second swimming stroke to be swum in competition after the freestyle, and was first swum in the Olympics in the 1900 Paris Olympics.
The elbows then bend to lift the arms out of the water where they then sweep over the water as low and as straight as possible before entering in front of the head to come together again.

    However, in competitive swimming, swimmers do submerge their head and breathe at designated points in the stroke. This stroke is performed with your stomach facing down. Your arms move simultaneously beneath the surface of the water in a half circular movement in front of your body. Your legs perform the whip kick at the same time.

    Your body (hips and shoulders) should tilt with each arm stroke. As you move your arms, turn your face to the side to breathe. You should always be looking at the bottom of the pool, or to the side, never lifting your head out of the water to look straight ahead. While your arms are rotating, your legs should be in a constant flutter kick.

    The most inefficient swimming stroke due to it’s underwater arm and leg actions, breaststroke gets it’s smooth movements from the precise timing sequence. The power and momentum comes from the whip-like leg kick whilst the arm pull assists the breathing technique and keeps the whole stroke balanced.

    Basic Butterfly Stroke Technique. Rarely swum recreationally, basic butterfly stroke powerful, explosive and when performed correctly, very impressive. The powerful arm technique pulls the body up above the water surface as the dolphin leg kick snaps down. The arms are thrown over the water as the dolphin-like body movement causes the whole.
