High-Elbow Scull

Purpose: to develop 'feel of the water'

Pointers: move forearms as single units, try to feel pressure of the water an every portion of your hand and forearm

  • Lay face down in the water. (Pause to pick head up to breathe, then resume drill.)
  • Keep your elbows forward (toward the top of your head).
  • Move your lower arms (forearms and hands) as one unit in a figure 8 pattern.

Vertical sculling can be done with a vertical body position (possibly standing).
