There is a swim stroke that works kind of like a combination of the crawling swim stroke and that of the scissor kicking action of other swim strokes. This swim stroke is known as the Trudgen Stroke and is fairly popular swim stroke to be used by swimmers all over.
Here is how to perform the Trudgen Stroke when swimming.
Step 1. You will want to start in a face down position that will leave you looking into the pool. This is often called the glide position and is how many swimmers start swimming.
Step 2. Start to perform the crawl stroke that is famous with the crawl stroke. This is swinging your arms around like they were windmills. Make sure the hands are sorta cupped so that they can cut through the water and get you to the other side.
Step 3. When moving the arms make it so that they are back to your back and you will be able to push the water away. A slight bend of the elbow is recommended as it allows people to move forward.
Step 4. Move your head. If you have your left hand up you will breathe on the left side and if you have your right hand up you will breathe on your right side.
Step 5. You will start to snap your legs as if they were a pair of scissors. Do this while your arms are moving into and out of the water.
Step 6. Every few minutes you will stop moving your legs so that you can focus on the arms. When you are changing arms your legs will not be snapping. The key is to combine both so that they appear to work together.
