Technical Freestyle
Technical Freestyle
with Matt Kredich, University of Tennessee Head Coach; 2008 SEC Women's Coach of the Year, 4x Ivy League Coach of the Year This presentation highlights the technical elements that are critical to swimming great technical freestyle. Kredich's innovative drills isolate the most critical positions for attaining forward momentum on the straightest line possible! ON DECK Coach Kredich begins on the Vasa Trainer with a physics discussion involving drag forces that a swimmer is faced with when swimming freestyle. This discussion and demonstration shows how to use the levers of the arm while engaging the lats, back and core. Kredich demonstrates how executing a deep catch and then applying pressure on as much surface area on the water as possible in the direction that you want the body to go offers the most effective way to generate forward momentum with each arm pull. This science made simple demonstration incorporates positioning and movement through the entry, catch, pull, finish and recovery. Kredich next shows the basis of long axis swimming with demonstrations of how to execute rotation with good hip stability utilizing boxing gloves. IN THE POOL In the Kick segment, Kredich reviews the goals of the leg movement required to execute an effective flutter kick. He includes three drills that work on vertical kicking and speed position kicking. This leads into a one arm freestyle drill that trains the entry into the catch position - perhaps the most critical arm movement of the stroke. The kick, the pull and the rotation are critical elements of moving the fingertips down and forward to attain a deep catch position. Kredich presents two unique drills that help isolate the deep catch position with a focus on core connection for better balance and line. Kredich combines the elements of the body position, kicking and deep catch drills into a full stroke demonstration. Building upon the deep catch concept, Kredich presents a three-drill series that trains the swimmer to be aware of critical elements of the stroke, including sculling. He also shows a very unique sequence that forces the swimmer to connect the core to the deep catch and forearm anchor concept. In a segment on Recovery, Kredich discusses varying recovery styles that may best suit each individual swimmer. He presents a five-drill sequence that combines the elements of the deep catch to the recovery, breathing and timing of the stroke offering a variety of ways to let the swimmer feel various stroke elements. Again, this skill set sequence is followed with a series of full stroke demonstrations. Order now and learn the newest, most efficient ways to move through the water in freestyle! 84 minutes. 2011.
