Swim Faster - How to use proper body posture on the Vasa Swim Erg & Vasa Trainer
Thursday, October 16, 2014
Proper body posture in swimming is critical for fast, efficient Freestyle and all strokes. Coach Matt Kredich explains why he uses the Vasa Swim Erg with forearm cuffs (instead of hand paddles) to teach swimmers the proper body posture while pulling with a high elbow catch to fully engage the lats, core and back muscles, which are essential for developing efficient biomechanics and powerful, strong propulsion in the water. Learn how to make adjustments to your body position when training on a Vasa Swim Erg or Vasa Trainer and avoid the common Freestyle mistakes of slipping, dropped-elbows, and crossing midline.
