PHILIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village. I'm Philip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. Breast stroke underwater drills. My personal favorite would be the one pull, two kick drill. Basically, what happens is you're going to provide that one-pull breathe and then you're going to submerge yourself under the water for a two kick process. Again, that's going to be a kick, glide, kick, glide. What this is going to do is it's going to allow you to really emphasize that kick and really focus on that glide to see how far you're getting with each kick. Again, it's going to be that distance per kick. And that's really what you're looking for out of this particular drill. What this also provides is an opportunity to focus on your breathing control. Pull, breathe, submerge, kick, glide, kick, glide, pull, breathe, submerge, kick, glide, kick, glide. And again, the emphasis of this drill is to focus on the distance per kick.
