Searching for the Perfect Freestyle - The Key Technique Components and the Best Ways to Improve
Freestyle—it’s the foundation of swimming and usually serves as the base of most of our training. It can sometimes seem easy to learn because we practice it so much. But what if we are doing it wrong or taking it for granted because it’s so “easy”? Is there a perfect freestyle we should all be reaching for? We sat down with SwimLabs’ Olympian instructor Kara Lynn Joyce and Biomechanics expert Trever Gray to figure out what the optimal freestyle is and how we can achieve it.
