How do you improve your catch and pull more water behind you increasing propulsion?

Learn to utilise the catch phase of the stroke more and engage your lats with the Early Vertical Forearm technique!

Aim to perform a slower catch, bringing your elbow to 90 degrees with a vertical forearm and your fingers pointing down. You should have a vertical forearm position by the time your arm is in line with your shoulder

Improves distance per stroke

Technique paddles to help enhance this:

Forearm fulcrums

The Forearm Fulcrums develop an early vertical forearm (EVF) position and increase stroke efficiency. An EVF position utilizes the entire forearm during the pull, from fingertips to elbow.

They promote stroke refinement through muscle memory of proper hand, wrist and forearm position. The Forearm Fulcrums improve efficiency and maintain a strong, uninterrupted pull from the beginning of the stroke to the end.

To find out what your catch is like and the tracking of your arms underwater get in touch with Nick to book a swim video analysis lesson in the amazing endless pool in Ripley near Guildford Surrey or call him on 07958635142
