Episode 12 Butterfly Macrocycle:
Microcycle 8 – Kicking
Peter and Michael explains non propulsive and propulsive kicking for butterfly demonstrated with SwimPro Video footage. Their goal is to keep kick small and fast, maintaining body streamline as much as possible within the stroke cycle, kicking splashless and rhythmical with no part of the kicking action breaking the water surface while also keeping the kick small and fast in the latter part of races. The kick effort should never exceed that which is needed to counter-balance the required arm-stroke elements.
