Anyone who often swims knows that if you want to attract attention in the swimming pool, you should swim a medley! So do you know the main points of various swimming strokes? Have you chosen a stroke that suits you? Look at the main points of the following swimming strokes.
The simplest stroke.
Keep your body level and move forward by pulling the water back with your hands. The stroke has a downward angle, because the head is exposed to the water to inhale with the help of downward force.
As shown in the picture below, pay attention to the leg movements. During the backward kick, the soles of the feet are perpendicular to the direction of the body and have the largest contact with the water.
Hands and feet move alternately, paddling-retracting legs when the head sinks-kicking when the body is parallel to the water-paddling.
The most chic stroke.
Leg movements are very simple, just straighten your legs, relax your knees and ankles, stand on tiptoe (generally speaking, try to imitate fish and minimize resistance), and fetch water up and down.
The difficulty of freestyle is breathing!
When our left hand slides, our left shoulder is down, and when our right hand slides, our right shoulder is down. When one hand slides in the water, the body is sideways. At this time, you can raise your head a little and breathe in. When you exchange hands, your head will be down. At this time, exhale slowly through your nose (to prevent water from entering your nose). Generally, your hands breathe alternately twice.
The most domineering stroke.
Spread your arms horizontally, like a butterfly flapping its wings.
Butterfly upper limb movements:
The power provided by leg movements is relatively small, and leg movements are specifically divided into bending knees-lifting hips-kicking legs (calves). Most people have coordination problems in butterfly stroke and kicking, which requires long-term practice.
The easiest stroke.
The density of people is very close to that of water. Taking a deep breath in the water makes people float, and when they finish spitting, they will sink. The advantage of backstroke is that we just need to drop our mouth and nose out of the water, and we don’t need to spend any effort on breathing.
Backstroke is actually a freestyle in which the kick is the same as freestyle, and the hand is the same principle, but the face is up and you are not worried about breathing. For wild swimmers, backstroke is actually a rest posture. Backstroke is not suitable for swimming pools, because there will be people swimming around the waves and they can’t see the situation ahead.
If there is no professional coach, people who learn swimming will ignore the most basic exercises, and they will practice breaststroke and freestyle when they get into the water. This is unrealistic, and everyone should start from the most basic. Please pay attention to the practice of water, holding your breath and breathing!
The biggest secret of swimming is to dare to try!
