How to do a streamline pushoff from the wall (frontcrawl swimming)

After I posted the video showing how Stacy had reduced her number of strokes from 30 to the low 20’s I had some athletes ask me how they can do the same. Well one easy way to knock off some strokes is to improve your streamline push-off from each wall. When we swim in a pool we have to make lots of turn. The better and faster you are at getting off the wall the faster and more efficient you will swim. In the video below I asked John (the self proclaimed King of pushoffs in the pool) to demo for us. Click on the video below to see how well he does. I think he does a great job….. Oh, here is a good tip. After you pushoff from the wall take a look above and see how close you are to the backstroke flags. If you have a good pushoff you should be very close (or beyond) to the flags when taking your 1st breath. Use the distance from the flags as a measure of your efficiency. Many swimmers lose this distance as they fatigue. With focus on great technique you can keep your pushoff’s from each wall long and streamlined.
