What Is Your kick style?
Traditional flutter kick is either 6 beat or 2 beat.
Which kick beat is best for you?
Research shows, to make the 2 beat kick style work effectively you need certain physiological elements in place in your stroke:
Swimmers need a good catch technique pressing the water backwards, effectively at all times.
An absence of a pause and glide in your arm stroke timing.
Good rhythm to the stroke, moving continuously from one stroke to the next
A developed kicking technique, kicking from the hip with very little knee bend.
Don't forget proper foot placement in the water. Heels should be at the waters edge and not lower than your hips. Motion of kick should resemble kicking a soccer ball.
