Freestroke/reststroke alternation

This page discusses alternating between freestroke/reststroke along with a video lesson.

Often new players practice freestroke and reststroke so much that they begin to look at each method in a vacuum, forgeting that both must be used interchangeably. You must find “the spot” where you can change between the two at will, without any awkward hand movements. In the “Excercises” section of the blog you will find excercises to practice freestroke, reststroke, and excercises that use both to help practice alternating between the two.
