Swim Wales Drill Progression Movement Flow Freestyle

Swim Wales Drill Progression Movement Flow Freestyle

This video introduces the swimmer to a system of combining movements and exercises into ‘Movement Flows’. The goal of a movement flow is to combine exercises in a methodical sequence, moving from one pose to the next, expressing fluidity and allowing for a smooth transition. Performing Movement Flows, not only develops strength and stability, but also cultivates creativity. The exercises used within the Movement Flow video, are the same exercises and movements used within the Drill Progressions. For example, the ‘Freestyle Movement Flow’, contains the exercises used within the ‘Freestyle Drill Progressions’. The Movement Flow demonstrations in these videos, do not cover all the technical points or instructions for each exercise. If you require more coaching or technical points around individual exercises used within the Movement Flow, this information can be found in the Drill Progression videos.

'Pre-Competition Readiness' - Part 2: A Chat with Anna Hopkin

'Pre-Competition Readiness' - Part 2: A Chat with Anna Hopkin

Swimmer Anna Hopkin joins Chris for a conversation about her journey in swimming and how she prepares herself to race. Chris: "I was very fortunate to have coached Anna while she was at the University of Bath and use all of what I learned during that time still in my coaching. When I first met Anna she was returning to the sport after a long break away. Her journey is not the typical one you see from a swimmer, but it highlights the importance of focusing on doing what is right for the athlete in front of you and also that each swimmers journey is different and we need to be prepared for that as swimmers, coaches and parents."
