Freestyle Drill Sequence
This simple sequence describes most of the drills used in the series. You can learn them quickly even if you are not used to doing Total Immersion drills.

6 Beat Kick Drills
6 Beat Kick is preferred to stabilize your lower body. It makes your swim resistant to a swell or a current.
Constantly moving your legs helps to avoid cramps and maintain body temperature.

We introduce Finis Ankle Strap to learn 6 Beat Kick more efficiently. But you can get the idea of moving your knees without it.

Edging Drills
To be resistant to a swell or a current, swim with an angled body while leaning forward. When you extend your arm in the water, lean forward and place your weight on your arm. This movement is called edging as if swimming through the water like a knife.

When you edge your body, it is important to tighten your core muscles and keep your legs together. We introduce Finis Ankle Strap to learn edging more efficiently.
