How To Perfect Your Backstroke

Sport : Swimming

One of the strokes that people either take to naturally or find quite disconcerting is the backstroke. Some people find themselves sinking when they try it, whilst for others it's like being a duck to water!

Here are some tips on good technique to help you out:

- Ensure that you have your arms as straight as possible

- Use a mild roll of your shoulders whilst performing the stroke

- Continue to kick consistently

- Try to get your hands to enter the water at the right angle for best effect. If you imagine an analogue clock, then the best position is approximately your hands at 11 and 1 o'clock respectively.
