The new Elite Pullkick in red from Speedo is a swim training aid that will give you optimum buoyancy, improve your strength and swim technique. This excellent design doubles as a pull buoy and kickboard giving you two training aids in one and gives superior wrist support. When using as a pull buoy, hold high up between your legs to give your body buoyancy in the water and to immobilise your legs. If using as a kickboard, hold in front of you to immobilise your arms giving your lower body a specific workout.
Benefits of a pull buoy:
- Improves Body Position: The buoyancy of the pull buoy brings your hips higher up in the water and teaches your body to swim more horizontally and streamlined, which will increase your efficiency, speed and endurance. Maintains balance so that you can focus on your arm stroke.
- Improves breathing technique: Helps you to develop a bilateral breathing rhythm as you swim more relaxed and easily when you are not kicking.
- Builds upper body strength: As your legs are not being used, you isolate your upper body muscles and, over time, will increase strength in your upper body. You can use a pull buoy in conjunction with hand paddles for a more challenging work out for your arms.
Benefits of a kickboard:
- 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.
