Breaststroke Line

2/27/2012
BY LISA WEMHOFF//NATIONAL TEAM HIGH PERFORMANCE CONSULTANT
The pull and the kick are very important aspects of breaststroke. However, there is a part of the stroke that often gets overlooked: the body line.

The best breaststrokers in the world don’t win the race because of their super strong pull or kick. Their ability to hit a solid line between every stroke helps them keep their speed throughout the race.

Check out some of these photos illustrating each athlete hitting a very strict body line:

Reaction Time

When separating the men’s and women’s reaction times, I found that men generally have a .04 head start on the women. The average men’s reaction time was .69 and the average women’s reaction time was .73.

When looking at each individual country on the men’s side, the only countries that had faster reaction times than USA had a sample size fewer than 20.

On the women’s side, Sweden and Great Britain had faster reaction times than USA. Other countries that were faster than USA had a sample size fewer than 20.

When both the men’s and women’s results were gathered together and each country was compared, USA tied for first place at an average of .70 with Sweden. The other countries that had a large enough sample size to compare were Australia, Great Britain, Netherlands, Poland and Russia.

In swimming, reaction time can be classified in two separate categories. The first is the time it takes you to react to the signal and the second is the time it takes you to get off of the block. To improve the time it takes to react to the signal, it would help to practice with the same start signal that would be used in a race. You can do drills on dry land such as standing on deck and clapping as quickly as possible after hearing the start signal. In order to get off the blocks faster it would help to have a good starting position on the block. To learn more about starts, read “Take Your Mark. Go!”
