BASIC SWIMMING STROKES

The common swimming strokes or styles are:

 

BACK SWIMMING STROKE 

Backstroke is swum on the back. It is faster than breaststroke but slower than butterfly.

Backstroke is faster than breaststroke but slower than butterfly.

Physicians often prescribe backstroke swimming to people experiencing back problems because it gives the back an excellent workout.

 

 

BUTTERFLY SWIMMING STROKES 

Butterfly is the second fastest swim stroke after freestyle.

It has a reputation of being hard to learn and is quickly exhausting. But once you have mastered it, swimming a few lengths of butterfly can be a lot of fun!
