Hi, my name is Barbara. We are here at the Village on Main in Utah. Today, we are going to talk about some breaststroke kicking techniques. For this, you will need a swimming pool, a bathing suit, a swimming cap, and some goggles. You will also need a kick board for some of these exercises. The breaststroke kick is best described as a frog kick. You'll want to keep your knees together, pull your ankles apart, and bend your knees close to your chest. And then push your feet towards each other in a circular motion. You want to make this really smooth and not choppy. The most important part of the kick is to glide when your feet are straight. Your legs are straight and you are moving forward so don't skip out on that or else you won't move forward very much. You can also do breaststroke kicks on your back to practice. For this exercise you want to have your arms up above you in a streamline position and just kick like you were on your stomach but do it on your back. Remember to glide. You can also do breaststroke kicks with a kick board. You can hold the top or the bottom of the kick board. Try to keep your head down and kick consistently. And those are some breaststroke kick exercises that you can do in the pool.
