First, imagine a line that runs down the center of the body; this is the axis upon which the entire body will pivot horizontally towards the other side of the pool. Keep the legs straight without letting them get rigid, pointing out the toes. Kick up and down for the entire duration of the swim. The arms, meanwhile, will be moving in a windmill motion, opposite of o­ne another. That is, when o­ne arm is extended forward, the other should be extended backward. The hands should be flat, thumbs separate from the index fingers. Simple propel the arms in a forward motion, never stopping to ensure top speed.

To conclude, freestyle is a simple technique for swimming. Just make sure to stop when getting close to the other side of the pool. Remember to turn the head side to side in order to breathe in between strokes, as well.
