Freestyle Swimming and Hand Position

By February 26, 2006

Follow me on:

The use of hands in swimming is something people may overlook. While swimmers think of their hands as holding on to the water as far out front as possible, we tend to allow our hands to do whatever they want, and trust that they are leading us in the right direction. Sometimes they do, and sometimes they do not! (Glenn Mills/GoSwim)
