Video Transcript: "PHILLIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village. I'm Phillip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. Kicking Drills: Butterfly kicking drills are quite fun. You have all the opportunity to take your breath while utilizing a kickboard and just focusing on your quadriceps as that's where a lot of your kick comes from is utilizing your quadriceps. Just set up different types of distances that you wish, grab your kickboard, keeping your head above, not using your back. Again, what a lot of people end up doing is they end up using their whole body for their dolphin kick and what that does, eventually, is it'll start causing back problems. So, really focus on just using the knees and the quadriceps for your kick and basing your distance off of your ability."
