Stick with the sissor kick.

Reply Avijit Banerjee November 21, 2019 Hi Coach Mandy, thank you for sharing this video. It's indeed very helpful. Cheers, Avi Reply Clownish-Gambino November 21, 2019 Wow! Yea they require this for stroke at Bud/s Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL indoc and Phase II…not even the Navel Seal channels on You tube have made this so easily understandable. I just couldn't ever wrap my head around the mechanics of all the different parts to this stroke. I could of used this about a decade ago when I wanted to join up. Now I have a reason to try to learn this once again, but without the presssure of making the cut.. Thank you soooo much! Reply KierOg November 22, 2019 Im having trouble with my breathing. I think this will help me strengthen that area. Thank you! Reply robohippy November 23, 2019 It will be interesting to see where you go with this. If I was to comment on your style for this, without seeing the title, I would ask why are you swimming breast stroke and breathing to the side? Most of what I had seen on CSS was the old Stew Smith videos, and looked some more up just before posting this comment. Things have changed…. Personally, I could never get the old frog kick, or newer whip kick. Just alien to me, or maybe 'Abby Normal' for the Young Frankenstein fans… I know with breast stroke, the kick provides most of the thrust as compared to other strokes where the arms supply 90% or so of the thrust. I do remember comments from some CSS swimmers that the breast stroke was a lot faster than the CSS. One thing I have wondered is if the scissor kick as as strong as the whip kick… I did find out that changing the scissor kick to resemble the whip kick created far less drag, but it was still more of a stroke and glide thing. By switching to the flutter kick, then it becomes much more of a constant pace stroke, which to me seems to be more efficient since you don't have to stop and start your movement with each stroke. Put in over 7000 yards yesterday, in honor of my 69th birthday…. 100 yards / year… all over arm side stroke. Wouldn't have survived it with freestyle. Normal work out is 5500 to 6,000…… Now to find out if I have anything left after yesterday's work out…. Reply chinh luan November 24, 2019 Hi coach, what functions of this practice?
