In this video, in Jorge Guzmán, Personal Swimming Trainer in Can Caralleu, explains three of the most common mistakes we make when we swim crol and how to correct them.

The first mistake is having the looking forward.

This causes:
- tension in the cervicals
- misalignment with the back
- And difficulty when we have to turn to breathe

How to fix it?
- We will look totally at the bottom of the pool or with a small incline ahead
- When we have to turn to breathe, we will keep that position from the head to the back


The second error is to cross the arms ahead Our in the entrance to the water.

This causes:
- Loss of the hydrodynamic shape of the body
- loss of slip
- And difficulty in increasing the cadence of braces

How to fix it?
- We will keep the arms aligned in the prolongation of the shoulders


The third error is swim plane, without rolling, with the body parallel to the bottom of the pool.

This causes:
- Loss of the main source of propulsion in crol, which is the rolide
- difficulty making the aerial part of the movement of the arms
- increase of the frontal resistance of our body

How to fix it?
- We will rotate our body on the longitudinal axis oscillating, from one side to the other
- The head does not rotate with the body except when we want to breathe

If you have any doubt you can contact our pool technicians clubs.
