USA Swimming - Good vs Poor Body Position off a Swimming Start

Video One:  Poor Body Position off a Swimming Start

This video is an example of how speed can be lost with minor flaws in body position. Note how his feet drop below his body line and his hips rise, creating an inefficient V-position rather than a straight line. -usaswimming

Video Two:  Poor BoGood Body Position off the Start

The following video is an example of excellent underwater body position after the start. Notice how quickly he establishes his horizontal line after entry and how he holds speed by maintaining a tightly streamlined position parallel to the surface, without allowing his feet to rise or fall relative to his line. - usaswimming
