Body Positioning Drill #3

Drill #3:

Vertical Body Position

Position your body vertically in the water as you did for Drill #2. Hands can stay in the water to help support you. Test your ability to lift your body out of the water to expose your shoulders, chest, and maybe even your stomach.


While keeping your hands in the water, now incorporate all of the leg positioning options from Drill #2 to assist your body to rise vertically. Which angles move you faster, sturdier, and more powerful? Each angle may provide you with a different purposeful movement.


Remove your hands from the water and test your vertical movement again. How high can you rise and which leg angles (more vertical, more horizontal, narrower, wider) give you faster, sturdier and more powerful movements?
