MUMMY DRILL Freestyle Arm Drag Drill

This drill takes some coordination… strong kick, strong pull, good long axis rotation.

The student has to be motivated to make it challenging by causing drag with one long, straight arm, while pulling with the other arm. The value of the long axis rotation for a breath will be obvious to them. The positioning of one arm reaching up while the other is on the leg will enable for easy, balanced rotation. This drill requires a strong desire to “do it right” and should be saved for the serious, motivated student who appreciates hard work. Otherwise, it is too easy for him to “cheat” on the arm drag portion of the drill, making this drill almost worthless.
