Freestyle kick



  • I am a distance freestyle swimmer and have a crossover kick, it has worked really well so far but wondering if changing it would help make my freestyle faster. I have heard some people say if you have a crossover kick you should not mess with what works for you but have also heard differently. What should i do?

    Could the crossover kick be happening due to kick timing during your roll? Underwater video may help see if it is caused when that happens. Do you have a arm crossover as well, sometimes the body does a kick crossover to compensate. Also check out the trudgeon crawl stroke.
