Tips for swimming the Backstroke
For me, swimming is a natural complement to running. It is cardio and strength training all in one and oh so easy on the knees compared to running. Plus it is great to focus on the upper body, since running really works the legs. I will admit there are some strokes I used to avoid (and some I think I will never master like Butterfly...hmmm, I see a new goal in my future), like backstroke. I think I swam in fear of bonking my head on the edge of the pool. Now I love it and consider it the most elegant of strokes.
So here are a few pointers on my new favorite stroke.
I hope these tips help you learn to love backstroke as much as I do...or at least inspire you to dive into a pool.
