Freestyle Stroke Correction: Fix Your Hand Not Your Elbow Drop

A Hard Freestyle Stroke Correction Made Easy

I think that Paul makes an excellent point in the video below. Sooner or later every swimmer is going to have someone tell them "you are dropping your elbow". This is particularly the case for beginners where there is always some well-meaning person, wanting to help with your freestyle stroke correction. The problem is that fixing a dropped elbow is quite an intensive process and as Paul points out it may not even be the problem.

Wait... Get Your Lesson Plans Here

Let's face it, as a beginner fixing your hand position is much easier than trying to raise your elbow. In fact, I venture to say that anybody no matter what their experience level would find that changing your had position is way easier than changing your elbow position.

From my point of view, the video is a bit long and as a result, the point is laboured. I didn't find I needed to watch the whole thing to get the point and figure how to fix the problem but you may find that it's detail is a help.
