The Alignment Kickboard from Finis is a great swim training tool to help improve body alignment in the water and improve your kick technique. This Finis kickboard is designed to sit 6" under the water to help keep your body in a straight line and also allows you to put your head in the water as you swim. It has a hand strap on top of the board so that you do not hold onto the edges which helps to create perfect body alignment. The streamlined design is great for all types of kicking drills so that the swimmer builds core and lower-body strength. Works great with a swim snorkel and/or swim fins.
- Improve balance and body position in the water: Rest your arms on the board and press your armpits down to bring your hips up in the water - if you just hold the kickboard your head will be up which makes your hips lower in the water creating drag. You should kick from your hips for a nice big powerful kick. Ankles should stay below the surface to create more leverage and forward motion.
- Practice your kick stroke: Using a kickboard isolates your legs so that you can concentrate on your technique as you are not having to think about your arms. Some swimmers rely too much on their arms and drag their legs through the water. This will make you swim slowly and tire you out quickly.
- Improve leg strength: using a kickboard gives your legs an isolated work out and will build up lower body strength and endurance.
