Paddle-On-Head Drill

Monday, October 26, 2015

Last year at the USA Triathlon Art & Science of Coaching Symposium, the High Performance Director for USA Pentathlon, Dr. Genadijus Sokolovas (aka Dr. G.), presented his favorite freestyle drill.

It helps swimmers maintain a straight head and body position during freestyle.
