swimmer Quality control of FLY-BACK TURN technique                        
  1. SWIMMING BEFORE TURN    
 
                 
x Timing of moment for touching the wall    
  2. APPROACHING PHASE        
x Forward speed before touch( as high or better compared to swimming)    
  3. ROTATION PHASE        
x Action of arms during rotation (quick recovery,entry when feet touch )
 
 
x Action of legs during rotation (quick grouping)    
x Placing the feet to the wall (correctly and simultaneously )    
x Speed and movement of hips during rotation (not stoping)    
x Duration of rotation (short)    
x Body position at the end of rotation (back, arms streched)
 
 
  4. PUSHING PHASE        
x Position of body and arms for push (hide head between the streched arms)    
x Back position (rigid and fixed during push)    
x Mean pushing speed (high)
 
 
x Push duration (very short)    
  5. GLIDING PHASE        
x Head , body and legs position (must be very streamlined )    
x Glide speed after push before leg kicks    
  6. UNDERWATER KICKING PHASE        
x Timing of the beginning the first leg kick    
x Head and arms position during leg kicks    
x Rhythm and action of legs during kicking    
x Duration and number of kicks to keep high forward speed    
x Speed during leg kicks    
  7.PULLOUT PHASE    
 
 
x Timing of the beginning of first pullout stroke    
x Forward speed during first pullout stroke    
x Timing of the beginning second pullout stroke    
  Forward speed during second pullout stroke
 
 
x The action of arm strokes and recovery during pullout    
x The action of body during pullout    
x Timing of arms and legs at the end of pullout strokes    
  7. SWIMMING AFTER TURN        
x Swimming speed after turn ( same as during pullout)
