Video Transcript: "PHILIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village. I'm Philip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. Pull drills. For breast stroke, once again, we're going to utilize the pull buoy to isolate the legs and really focus on the upper body. During these pull drills, which you want to focus on, is keeping your head low to the water which you'll find oftentimes in the beginning portion or the beginning years of individuals who are working on breast stroke is that they'll want to bring their whole body up and out of the water. And it's really key and important to keep your body low, to keep it low to the water, keep your head down, and just keep chugging. The higher you come out of the water, the deeper you're going to go when you come back down which will contribute to a drag factor that you do not want. So, really, it's important doing your pull drills to focus on the reach, outward sweep, inward sweep and recovery. Keeping the face looking down and focusing on the power in your upper body."
