Rotation is a key element of the front crawl stroke. It enables you to be strong and efficient in the water so once you’ve mastered the coordination of the essential arm and leg movements it’s time to work on the body roll.

At first this might feel like an unnatural movement that doesn’t benefit your stroke but once you’ve got the hang of rotating your body in time with your pull you’ll be amazed at how much easier front crawl feels and how much faster you can swim for the same effort.

With so much to gain let’s find that perfect body rotation. Fraser & Heather are here to explain more!

WHAT IS PRE-ROTATION? The Rules, Scoring, and Misconceptions

There is a lot of discussion about pre-rotation in figure skating, and also a lot of confusion. In this video I give examples of pre-rotation, explain how it is (and isn't) scored, and what I think of it as a whole.

Swimisodes - Freestyle Swim Technique - Body Rotation

Body Rotation is one of the key ingredients to a fast freestyle swim technique. At The Race Club swim camps ( we believe a swimmer should rotate the shoulders maximally during most races. One of the most important drills we have found in teaching swimmers how to rotate their body for freestyle swim technique is the body rotation swim drill. In this swim drill we use fins and a snorkel to allow the swimmer to focus on the act of rotating. The swimmer rotates their body aggressively so that the shoulder is vertical after 6 kicks. Turn the body slightly or slowly and you won’t feel much increase in power, turn the body quickly and aggressively and the increase in speed will be dramatic. You can also try this drill with 12 kicks or for a real challenge try every 3.

We use many dryland exercises at the Race Club to improve our body rotation in the pool . Bicycle Sit Ups are a great exercise we regularly incorporate into our dryland as well as Roundhouse Boxing. By using the core for these exercises one can feel a stronger connection in the pool and lead to a faster freestyle swim technique. Learn the secret to improving your rotation by learning this drill and these dryland exercises in this #swimisodes

Rotation - How To Swim Front Crawl | Freestyle Swimming Technique

Front crawl swimming can look smooth, fast and effortless. We are continuing to break down the stroke to perfect each stage in order to help you develop your front crawl. In this video we’re going to be looking at rotation.

Subscribe to GTN:
Check out the GTN Shop:

The front crawl stroke can be broken into four phases, the catch, the pull, the exit and the recovery. Rotation happens throughout all four and is essential to making the stroke smooth and efficient. You should actually only spend a moment totally horizontal throughout each stroke, when your right hand is underwater and “pulling” you need to rotate up on the left and vice versa.

You don’t want to rely purely on your arm strength to pull you through the water, you need to add in full body rotation. Super flexible shoulders might well allow you to have the full range required for swimming but you’ll be losing out on a lot of potential power as well as being more vulnerable to injury.

The rotation in front crawl should be purely around the longitudinal axis, imagine there is a line going from the top of your head down to your feet and your hips, shoulders and torso all rotate around this, no side to side bending movement should be seen. This will allow you to engage the larger muscles in your back and torso therefore generating far more power on each stroke.

Drills you can do to help with rotation include:
- Kick rotation
- One arm extended side kick
- Six kicks rotate
- Corkscrew
Check out the full video for more on all of these.

Today – March 18, 2019 – I’m officially launching my ROTATION MASTER CLASS.

In this video I’m giving you a preview of some of what is in that masterclass, PREREQUISITES. By prerequisites I mean what do you need to do FIRST to be able to rotate? The baseline theory here is you have to do things in your swing and that give your brain motivation to rotate.

I know I have to rotate - that's important. I know I have to do some things to increase my odds of rotation. What is the most important thing to increase odds of rotation? The clubface is the most important part. If you are making a golf swing - regardless of who you are - and your clubface is open specifically during the downswing, the odds of you rotating a lot are very slim.

Your clubface plays a huge role in everything. It's the biggest factor by far in everything you do in your swing and rotation is part of that. If you want to rotate more, you have to have your clubface square or closed.

Grip is the first thing that my cause my clubface to be too open. The weaker my grip is - the more my hands are turning counterclockwise on the club - the more my clubface wants to be open throughout my swing.

Number two cause of an open clubface is wrist conditions. The more your lead hand gets cupped throughout your swing, the more the club face and wants to be open. Cupped lead wrist means clubface open. Clubface open means no rotation.

And then the last part I would really look at would be arm rotation. How much you rotate your arms during your swing will change the clubface.

That's what you need to look at to see if you're doing it. And you cannot simply just try and feel those things. You need feedback. How do you know which one of those things is leading to your clubface being open? If you don't give yourself feedback, you don't know. Don’t guess on any of these things.

This video is maybe five minutes of us talking about one of like the 19 or 20 topics that are in the ROTATION MASTER CLASS. When you go through that masterclass, you understand what relates to you and you know what to work on.

If you're watching this and you've been doing rotation drills or have been trying to rotate for a month, a year, a week, ten years, whatever, and you're not able to rotate, I would be willing to bet you're doing something earlier on that's causing that. The ROTATION MASTER CLASS will explain all of that.

Effortless Power from Core Rotation Timing in Tennis

Time your shots like never before with the most effortless swing. In this video I describe how it feels to stretch your core muscles and release them to unlock powerful, effortless strokes. Legs will be added in my next video but please master this first step in a series of videos to come about how to master your ground stroke timing. Make your timing issues a thing of the past with this new way of timing your shots!
On a side note, my pronunciation of the word comfortable needs more practice. I blame it on living in New Jersey. As you can tell, I was practicing with every time I used it. I think i nailed it in the last attempt, you be the judge.

HIP INTERNAL ROTATION: (3 BEST EXERCISES 2018)

These are some of the best hip internal rotation exercises (2018). Read the blog for more. [BLOG]:

This video is an update to a 2016 video I made. You should watch both and try out ALL the exercises for best results.

Lack of hip IR isn't a death sentence. I started out with almost zero hip IR and now have about 35 degrees or so. Is it stubborn and difficult to improve? Yes, for some people. But, you can improve a lot.

So what to do?

+++

The stuff you can’t control – bony anatomy

The shape, size and orientation of your femur (ball) and acetabulum (socket) are out of your control. This means that morphology (pincer, cam, mixed), alpha angle, retroversion/anteversion, etc are all factors – but not easy fixes.

Of course there are surgeries that are SOLD as quick, easy and 100% guaranteed, but if you dig a little deeper - buyer beware!

Don't get me wrong – surgery is helpful for some. It may even be necessary for some. I know people who got it and benefitted. However, It should never be the first choice. There are cheaper, less invasive, less risky options to exhaust first.

So, Shane - are you saying that morphology, alpha angle, retroversion/anteversion,etc don't matter?

NOPE! I'm saying that most people place 90% of importance on the factors they CAN'T control and 10% importance on the factors they CAN control.

Time to flip-flop that equation!

+++

The stuff you can control - muscles, movement & motor control.

Although we can’t change bony anatomy, we can influence the position of it. How?

-Motor control
-Exercise selection
-Hip capsule restrictions
-Muscle density and extensibility
-Lifestyle & psychosomatic factors

+++

The Hip Stick – the missing puzzle piece for your hips

I created this tool out of personal necessity. My adductor / hamstring attachment area was always gunked up (myofascial restrictions / scar tissue). I needed a way to massage it more effectively, so I created this tool.

Because of its shape, size and maneuverability - it gets into your adductors better than other mobility tools. In my experience, there is no more effective way to free your adductors than this.

When you free these attachments way up by the hip joint, you can unlock lots of hip internal rotation.

Watch the video above for a demonstration on how to use it.

+++

The Hip Capsule - joint centration for the win!

Even though I covered the hip capsule mobilization in a previous video it needs repeating. The hip capsule is so important because whatever is nearest the joint restricts range of motion the most. When you free the hip capsule you get a lot of quick mobility gains.

+++

More anterior pelvic tilt (APT) = Less internal rotation (IR)!

With APT, the roof of the acetabulum covers more of the femur, and limits hip flexion and hip rotation.

It's basically a kill switch for hip mobility!

Want to completely shut down the range of motion of your hip? Spend most of your life in APT!

Wanna know something else interesting? Research shows that those with femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) use less posterior pelvic tilt during hip-flexion exercises (squats, for example).

In plain English this means they are doing the opposite of what would help them!

This isn't just motor morons either. Even skilled physical therapists and trainers I've worked with need help here.

WARNING: too much posterior pelvic tilt (PPT) can be just as harmful as too much APT.

+++

Summary: The Hip IR Freedom Formula:

Lack of hip IR is neither a death sentence nor an easy fix. Most likely you can improve what you've got. You may not go from 0° to 45° of IR in 30 days, but we've seen some pretty radical improvements in ourselves and our clients.

Here's the formula: Free your tissues + gain full range + strengthen that range + free the hip capsule + master pelvic tilt + master basic movement patterns (bending/squatting) + don't live a crappy lifestyle of being stuck in APT.

Simple? Well, not exactly. But it's a start. That's why we made a comprehensive, proven system that's been helping people all over the world since 2015. Check it out below.

Rotation Series Part 1 – Thoracic Rotation and Why You Need It

We are covering a three part series on how limited rotation in the thoracic spine and/or hips can cause low back pain, impact your function, and impede on your performance in the gym. In this video, I am covering the impact of limited thoracic rotation can cause extra strain on the tissues of the low back. Because of basic spinal anatomy, about 60-70 degrees of rotation should occur at the thoracic spine while only 10-15 degrees at the lumbar spine. This is important because if someone does not have efficient mobility in the thoracic spine then this can cause excessive movement at the lumbar spine which can then lead to instability at the low back. Mix this excessive movement with some poor mechanics and weakness with the deeper stabilizers of the spine and we have a recipe for disaster.



How to test

What to look for: Imbalance right to left, extreme tightness on both sides, or pain with movement

On the floor
Seated


How to fix it

Complete 15-20 reps of each if you notice tightness or an imbalance right to left (focus on the more limited side)

Before training or as part of your daily stretching routine

Chest opener
Quadruped rotation
Squat with rotation


If you notice a significant imbalance or tightness OR you are having discomfort/pain with these tests and exercises then contact us at the Movement Rx team and we would love to take care of getting you back on the right track!



Cheers to better movement!
