Hi, I'm Olga and I'm Rotem. We're former professional swimmers and we're here on behalf of Expert Village. Alright, so now we're going to show you a kicking exercise. You can use a kickboard like the one we have and you can use a noodle if you have it in your local pool. So we're going to push off the wall slightly, it doesn't have to be strong. Okay, I'm going to place my hands like that and Rotem's hand is slightly different position, you can choose whatever is more comfortable for you. Kick and make sure that you kick the whole time to keep the balance. Okay, if you were in Rotem's position, you can't do bubbles, but if you were in my position that stimulates the streamline position, you can actually do bubbles. It works like this and make sure you practice that a lot.
