Video Transcript: "PHILLIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village, I'm Phillip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. An excellent backstroke drill is the arm up drill which will help focus on body position and also help to strengthen your legs. The specific purpose of this drill is to help focus on keeping the hips up out of the water; working with your body rotation, so, your shoulder is lining up on each reach with your chin without moving your head is just getting that reach with that flagpole effect, doing approximately a six-beat kick, rotating the arm, bringing the arm other arm up a six-beat kick, rotating in a six-beat kick. Now, this drill is tough. There's no two ways about it but the more you focus on it, the better you'll become, the stronger body rotation and the stronger legs you'll have or develop."
