Butterfly stroke

Basic Butterfly Stroke Technique

Butterfly Stroke Technique requires a high level of strength and power, particularly in the shoulders.

Video Transcript:
Butterfly is based on an undulating body movement, where the rise and fall of the head and hips balance and counter balance each other. As the body undulates, the swimmer maintains a stretched and streamlined position lead by the head. The movement must flow smoothly, with shoulders remaining horizontal throughout.

The kick is simultaneous, rhythmical and powerful, originating at the hip and remaining within the body width. The toes are pointed, ankles relaxed and the knees bend to provide a powerful downbeat whip like action. The strength, depth and power of the kick will depend on the distance and pace of the swim.

The arm action is simultaneous and symmetrical and should clear the water surface during the recovery. The hands enter the water thumb and index finger first, between the shoulder and the center line. The hands then press outwards and downwards to provide propulsion and move in an S shape pathway towards the hip where they exit the water. The arms are then thrown over the water ready for reentry to gain maximum extension per stroke.

Breathing should be regular and rhythmical, either every stroke or every other stroke, to suit the swimmers pace and ability. The chin is extended forward as the arms pull through their propulsive phase. The swimmer exhales explosively as the head rises and then inhales quickly as the arms exit and the chin is clear of the water. The swimmer can then submerge the face again and breath hold or exhale in a controlled way before another breath is needed.

A steady rhythm of two kicks per arm cycle is needed to maintain streamlining and undulation of the body movement. One kick supports the upward movement as the swimmers arms pull and the head raises to breathe. The second kick assists the undulation and propulsion as the arms recover. Put simply, the timing is kick, pull, kick, recover.

Swimming has featured on the programme of all editions of the Games since 1896. The very first Olympic events were freestyle (crawl) or breaststroke. Backstroke was added in 1904.

In the 1940s, breaststrokers discovered that they could go faster by bringing both arms forward over their heads. This practice was immediately forbidden in breaststroke, but gave birth to butterfly, whose first official appearance was at the 1956 Games in Melbourne. This style is now one of the four strokes used in competition.

Women's swimming became Olympic in 1912 at the Stockholm Games. Since then, it has been part of every edition of the Games. The men's and women's programmes are almost identical, as they contain the same number of events, with only one difference: the freestyle distance is 800 metres for women and 1,500 metres for men.

Butterfly Swimming Technique - How to swim butterfly

Butterfly Swimming Technique - How to swim butterfly. Side and front view. Read a full article on how to swim butterfly:

This video was presented to the viewer as an online reference and a free example in order to provide a visual explanation of how to swim butterfly. If you just started learning this stroke, you might need some advice to make the process a little bit easier.

First of all, there are two kicks while swimming butterfly: the first kick occurs during the catch phase and the other one during the finish. Make sure to keep legs together and move both arms at the same time. Second kick is usually performed stronger in order to help arms fly above the water.

Second of all, keep in mind that butterfly is the hardest stroke in swimming and requires power along with good flexibility in shoulders. Work on your biceps, triceps, abs, and lower body (squads and jumps) as well as increasing flexibility.

Last but not least, come back to our swimming channel time to time and watch our butterfly swimming videos to improve your technique. Still have trouble learning it? Try to go with drills first and then put all the pieces together for swim.

Technical Butterfly Stroke - Proper Pull with Elite Coach Matt Kredich

From
Respected Swim Coach Matt Kredich (University of Tennessee) uses the Vasa Trainer to teach proper butterfly pull mechanics among elite swimmers.

On the landing the swimmer squeezes the shoulder blades, shrugging to the ears. Arms are in line with the shoulders. It's a very fast position. The next step is the catch position and sliding into a forward elbow position which gets hands onto the water. The pull is important for positioning as well as propulsion. A focus just on propulsion can put a swimmer in the wrong position too soon. The Vasa Trainer makes it easier to diagnose and correct stroke technique errors in butterfly and other strokes.

This shorter video clip is part of Coach Kredich's outstanding DVD, All Access Butterfly, by Championship Productions.

HOW TO GET A BALLER BUTTERFLY

There’s no more daunting a stroke to swim than butterfly. It’s a stroke where no matter how much you've trained or how strong you are, you can lose it with a few strokes of thrashing. That's why we made this stroke progression.

Whether you are in practice or warming up at a meet, follow our progression of these three drills to find an incredible feel for your stroke. Start with a simple sculling motion, then undulate with your arms at your side, and lastly, do a half butterfly with an underwater recovery.

Following this progression in order, you will find a better feel for the water, more flexibility in your kick, and overall strength in your butterfly strokes. Next time you challenge Phelps to a dual, use this for your warm up.
