Breaststroke is one of the hardest strokes in the pool to master. Here are some ideas for how to improve your breaststroke and swim faster.

1. Keep your hips up. This reduces drag and puts you in a biomechanically stronger position to pull and kick hard.
2. Snap your ankles. Close your ankles at the end of each kick to maximize kick propulsion.
3. Master the timing. Breaststroke has two separate phases–the arm pull and the leg kick. Work tirelessly to get the timing right on this to maintain momentum and speed in the water.
