FLY DRILLS

Fingertip Drag

Drag your fingers through the water on recovery.  This will help with keeping your elbows high on recovery.  See video:

Dolphin Kick on Back

Push off the wall on your back in a streamlined position and doing a dolphin kick.  This will help with your butterfly kick and kicking from your core.  See video:

2/1

Complete two kicks and then one pull.  This will help with strengthening your kick.  See video:

One arm

Do three butterfly pulls with one arm and then three with the opposite side.  You can also do three normal fly strokes after that if you are able to.  This will help with your pull.  FYI:  If you aren’t able to do the full fly stroke yet, you can use the one arm technique during your workouts.  You can either do one arm down and the other back or do a certain number of strokes with one arm and then switch.

Dolphin Kick
