Here are the most common swimming techique problems.

  • Butterfly – submerging the head on the arm entry
  • Backstroke – failing to increase hand force on the push phase
  • Breaststroke – failing to kick the feet back and together so that the feet touch
  • Freestyle – failing to push the hand back beneath the thigh

The above limitations are almost universal. There is a very small proportion of swimmers who cannot benefit by addressing these issues.
