We are again going to be focusing on the catch for the technique part of the session on Saturday and doing some drills for this. We will be doing the “quick catch” drill again, amongst others, so check out the video again to remind yourself:

It is the section from 1:01-1:45 that is most important and watch the nice high elbow of the swimmer at the catch.

If you want to watch a good underwater video of Ian Thorpe and his great high-elbow catch, check out:

I’m looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday swimming like Ian Thorpe!
