Hints: You should first see the video lesson “Thumb technique” in the “Technique” section of this site before attempting to do any of these exercises. I suggest doing all these exercises in order if you are new to using your thumb. You should also have practiced freestroke before doing these thumb exercises because many of the exercises incorporate freestroke parts. Go to the “Exercises” section of this site to look for freestroke exercises.
