Using a pool noodle or two can provide you with extra flotation, making it easier to practice the freestyle stroke arm pull, working one arm at a time and focusing on proper technique. Learn how to use your noodle in this free video on swimming.
Hi, I'm Barbara, we are here at the Village on Main, and I'm going to be your swimming expert for today. Today, we are going to talk about using a pool noodle to practice your freestyle arm stroke. For this exercise, you will need a swimming pool, a bathing suit, a swimming cap, and some goggles. You'll also need a pool noodle or two if you want extra flotation. To do this exercise, hold the noodle out in front of you about shoulder's width apart. You can hold it a little bit wider if you'd like. Put your head down and start kicking. Once you are moving forward, pull one arm stroke and then hold on to the noodle. Then do the other arm stroke and hold on to the noodle. Repeat this until you get to the other end of the pool. Remember to do one arm at a time and focus on your technique. And that's how you can use a noodle to practice your freestyle arm stroke.
