Butterfly Swimming Technique - How to swim butterfly

Butterfly Swimming Technique - How to swim butterfly. Side and front view. Sign up for our free online swimming lessons and learn how to swim:

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. If you have any questions / comments / ideas about butterfly swimming, feel free to contact us and we will be glad to help you.

Butterfly Stroke Timing

Butterfly stroke timing and coordination can be simplified as pull, kick, pull, recover.

Video Transcript:
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.

Butterfly is a tougher stroke to master compared to freestyle, backstroke or breaststroke, but, by doing a few key things well, you can quickly progress with it.

Butterfly is swum on your front, eyes facing down and forwards as in front crawl, however, there is no rotation, your body should be parallel to the bottom of the pool. Your head leads the movement of the stroke and the rest of your body should follow, causing the undulating dolphin movement.

Dana Vollmer breaks World Record - Women's 100m Butterfly | London 2012 Olympics Games

Highlights of the Women's 100m Butterfly as USA's Dana Vollmer breaks the world record as she won Gold during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

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.

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.

Basic Butterfly Stroke Swimming Technique

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

Video footage courtesy of ZoggsUK

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.
