In this video lesson, Swimming Instructors, Rotem Agame and Olga Tzinker, teach the full arm movement. Bring your head out of the water to take a breath as you're returning your arms to streamline position.
Video Transcript: "Hi, I'm Olga and I'm Rotem. We're former professional swimmers and we're here on behalf of Expert Village. Now the way the breathing works, you actually breathe every stroke. Okay, you start from the streamline position, open your hands out to the side. When the hands are here you raise your head up, take a breath and when you bring the hands back you breathe out. Okay, one more time, open your hands, breathe in and breathe out."
To feel one’s body weightless, floating in the water for the first time, buoyed up and drifting with the waves, is one of the milestones of life. Everyone probably has some memory of their first encounter with a public pool, local body of water, or one of Earth’s oceans. And learning to move with purpose in the water, instead of flailing about, was probably one of the most apprehensive moments of childhood; hopefully most of us had someone there to help us and teach us how to swim as the fishes do. Eventually, many of us became strong swimmers, utilizing the forms and strokes that are widely accepted as proper swimming technique.
