Freestyle Catch


Well yesterday I wrote about being focused while you are working out and not swimming mindlessly. This morning as I was working out I was thinking about my “catch” of the water as I extended my stroke.I felt that although my stroke was extended I was letting my hand or what I use to refer as my “paddle” float down as I began my pull. When I thought about it I began to put more pressure on the “paddle” as I began my pull and I now felt more power being put into my stroke….Give it a try and see if you feel what I felt.
