Hi. This is Michelle McLafferty. And this is a one-arm drill to learn the s-pull for swimming. The s-pull gets its name from a slight s shape that you're hand makes during the catch phase of the freestyle stroke. As your hand comes underneath the water you want to make the most of the surface area to really get a good catch and ease you through the water with speed and efficiency. Essentially you're going to be kicking your feet, keeping yourself in a streamline position. One arm is just going to be up for support and you're going to be exercising the working arm and breathing to the working side. You're going to enter fingertips first, scooping the water in just a slight s shape as you attempt to push the water to the back wall behind you. Breathing to the side that you're working and do this all the way across one length of the pool then you can switch and do the other side.
