In this video, you will learn some exercises to improve your arm movements during backstroke. This is a type of swimming that is based on the thrust created by arm movements, and it is important to master these exercises in order to swim faster and without any risk of injury.

For this exercise, you will need a pull buoy.

We will demonstrate 2 exercises which allow you to improve your arm movements during backstroke: the orientation of your shoulders and the balance of your head.

First exercise: the orientation of your shoulders. Lie back in the water with your arms held to the sides of your body.

Swim the backstroke with just one arm. The other arm should be held against the side of your body. The point of this is to concentrate on the immersion of the shoulder of the moving arm. Even when unbalanced, be careful not to change the position of your head.

Swim one length and then switch arms and swim a second length.

Second exercise: the balance of your head. To encourage your to keep your head straight, place a pull buoy on your forehead.

The point of this is to keep your head stable while you're swimming the backstroke.

If you're not able to keep it on your forehead, swim slower.

In order to master these arm movements well during backstroke, practice the orientation of your shoulders and the balance of your head. Now it's up to you to give it a go!
