We are going to discuss the Legs in Swimming over 4 webisodes. There are 4 functions of the Legs in Swimming. This video is about propulsion and some of our favorite exercises to increase power in kicking. Propulsion is the part of the swim kick that allows us to move forward. When we generate power with our kick, we want to be moving in a forward direction, the fastest way to the end of the pool. With an efficient kick, we use the legs to move forward. With not so much efficiency, water and therefore energy is dispersed from side to side or elsewhere. Legs Propulsion is one function of the kick in our quest to swim fast.
