Swimming Lessons Glossary – 3-4 drill




3-4 drill

I don’t understand the phrase 3-4 drill. Can you Explain?


3-4 drill :Freestyle/backstroke drill. Take two strokes freestyle, and on the third stroke (when you turn to breathe), continue the roll until you’re on your back. Take three backstrokes, and on the fourth stroke, continue the roll until you’re back in the prone (freestyle) position. Continue alternating three freestyle and four backstroke strokes. This drill helps you focus on good body roll in both strokes.
