Rotation is a key element of the front crawl stroke. It enables you to be strong and efficient in the water so once you’ve mastered the coordination of the essential arm and leg movements it’s time to work on the body roll.

At first this might feel like an unnatural movement that doesn’t benefit your stroke but once you’ve got the hang of rotating your body in time with your pull you’ll be amazed at how much easier front crawl feels and how much faster you can swim for the same effort.

With so much to gain let’s find that perfect body rotation. Fraser & Heather are here to explain more!

Doing my first triathlon on the 15th. I haven’t had the time to train front crawl, would it make a big difference with the others (mainly adults) on 500m to swim breaststroke?

Maybe that would be too advanced, but what’s the deal with that S-curve the hand of top triathletes follows during their stroke?

Thank you so much!!!

I want to do a sprint triathlon, but I am exhausted after 50m. Where do I start?

I like your swimming tips hope this will help me get back to racing

you guys are so lovely, I love how you collaborate. great content straight to the point. thanks so much.

Thank you!!! From Canada


Zip up & 6-1 drills definitely helped me tons in my swimming. A secondary benefit was I developed my 3-stroke bilateral breathing through these two!
