A Guide To EVF
A Guide To EVF
In this video, Paul shows how to do EVF correctly.
Hi I'm Paul, this is Theo from swimminglessonslondon.co.uk.
We're going to give you a few tips on swimming today. You're more than welcome to contact us for any more information or to book a session. Thank you.
So now were going to give you a guide to EVF, early vertical forearm, Okay over to Theo. So what we have to concentrate is the forearm, we don't want to push the water only with the palm. We want to make an arch with the hand focusing on the forearm, so the power is on the forearm.
Make sure that you keep the wrist straight, the fingers straight. For a more advanced way, you can use the other side as well. When you push with one hand, with the left make sure you stretch forward with the right side.
One more time. Don't focus only on the palm. Make sure that you work with the forearm and all this area.
Try to repeat the same a couple of times. And make sure that you feel the water here. Imagine if you will that the forearm is the paddle, rather than just using the hand, using the whole of the forearm to pull through the water here.
Yeah, so more propulsion coming from that, what you can do is you can use the paddles and you can use some sculling exercises; make sure that you use this area, not the whole hand, not the shoulders. One thing to bear in mind when you're practicing EVF is you want to slow down the stroke when you're practicing it to get the right propulsion and the right shape of the arm all the way through the water. Theo will demonstrate now, it's all about preparation, making sure your hand goes in and you're already set up for the stroke so you get maximum propulsion.
But as you'll see he's slowed it right down so you can focus on the movement through the water maintaining constant position of the arm and constant direction of the pull through using his whole of the forearm rather than just the hand. Again think about the arm as a paddle.
