Looking for another drill to improve your high elbow pull?

Look no further than the Laying EVF drill.


The Laying EVF drill is great for many reasons–it’s on land, no equipment is required, focus is on the part of the arm that creates propulsion in Freestyle, plus you can make sure your hand fits into your “pocket.”

What is your pocket?

Your pocket is the space created between your elbow and hip that your pulling arm passes straight through while swimming. The pocket is important because no matter what type of pulling motion you are using (i.e. straight arm, hybrid, or EVF)–the pocket gives a visual and literal space for the hand to travel through. Plus, the pocket helps avoid crossing over your body while pulling, or pulling too wide outside your body! Do you pull through your pocket?
