Do you have a cross over on entry to your front crawl stroke or are you over reaching?
Do you have a cross over on entry to your front crawl stroke or are over reaching?
Or maybe you have another entry fault in your stroke?
Then try this drill to help correct it:
Touch head touch shoulder drill
Aim: Correct hand entry placement
Prior to entering your hand in the water, touch head then your shoulder then put your hand
in just past your forehead.
This drill helps stops / limit a cross over on entry of your stroke, and gives you an enhanced awareness of your recovering arm. It also helps with straightening your lead arm into a longer more efficient glide setting you up better for the catch phase.
