Did you do the swimming stroke correctly?

(Circle cards have been added here, please go to today’s headline client to check)

As soon as you enter the summer, you can be happy in the swimming pool!

The premise is that it is best for you to swim.

Learning to swim is not that difficult.

You can learn to swim by yourself.

Today, Xiao Bian integrated several strokes.

If, you will

So is your action correct?

Breaststroke stroke

The second propulsion element of breaststroke is the stroke (as shown below). Different from freestyle and backstroke, each movement is independent of each other; Therefore, timing is crucial. First of all, focus on the well-trained breaststroke holding and paddling stages. The difference is that the hands are not folded together like the skills introduced earlier. Holding water and paddling are two parts of the same action. Put your elbows together under your body and move your hands forward at the same time, so as to release the water from the paddling position.


Please make sure there is enough space for this exercise.

2. Lie prone in a neutral position, arms straight, palms down, almost streamlined.

carry out

1. Start holding the water, sweep the water outwards with your hands, slightly over your shoulders, and at the same time, tilt your fingers downwards and point to the bottom of the pool.

2. When viewed from above, the trunk and arms should be Y-shaped. When the finger leans down, the elbow bends slightly, making the forearm assume a more vertical position and exerting more pressure on the water.

3. Stop putting pressure on the water before your hands pass the elbow in a posture where the elbow is high and the elbow is low.

4. When you push your hands forward, put your elbows away.

5. When restoring the streamlined posture, make sure that your hands accelerate through.

Freestyle stroke cycle

Once one arm stroke cycle (one for the right arm and one for the left arm) is completed, multiple arm stroke cycles can be combined. Please remember that (unlike other sports) in swimming, the sooner the better is not always possible. Keep moving slowly and unhurriedly. The real goal of this part of the exercise is to fix a hand and forearm in the water and pull the body through them. Stop when you need to breathe.


 Start near the pool wall, push the pool wall, keep a streamlined posture, and face in the water.

carry out

1. Start with any arm and feel comfortable. Stroke your arm as many times as possible in one breath and exhale slowly.

2. Repeat this process several times and try to swim farther in the pool with the same number of strokes.

Basic backstroke stroke

A good backstroke stroke includes holding water, paddling, ending (palms facing your body, not the bottom of the pool) and resetting, which provide the main swimming propulsion. At a point where the stroke arm is almost vertical, rotate the hand and let the little finger guide the stroke arm to reset.


1. Make sure there are no obstacles in the swimming lane and the backstroke flag is in the proper position.

2. Adopt a balanced posture of supine.

Execution: holding water

1. Start with the left hand and the left arm, and rotate the hand so that the small point is inclined to the bottom of the pool. Doing so will cause you to rotate slightly to one side.

2. Bend your wrist so that your hand is perpendicular to the target direction.

Follow-up action: paddling

1. The second element is paddling. In this part, bend the elbow so that the forearm is perpendicular to the target direction. Keep your elbow away from your body and prevent it from guiding your stroke.

2. Pull back the arm while keeping the hand and forearm perpendicular to the target direction.


When the arm is halfway done, the arm is about in the middle position below the body. It is like trying to slap the thigh with your hand to transition from pulling to pushing.
