Why would we want to perform a half butterfly stroke with stretch cords?

Because this drill — demonstrated in the Workout Wednesday presented by Bioastin video below — will get you comfortable with the unnatural motion of the high elbow set.

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you know that I’m constantly encouraging my swimmers (at all levels) to improve their elbow set.  As this skill is mastered, freestyle speed will increase.

Watch this short video and start integrating this drill into your daily routine.  It’s quick, it’s easy… and it works!
