Breaststroke Legs: Step By Step...

We can break breaststroke leg kick down into 3 basic steps.

Step 1:

Knees bend as the heels are drawn up towards the seat. At the same time, the legs need to bend at the hips, effectively drawing the knees up under the body.

Step 2:

Feet and toes are turned out, exposing the surface area of the soles of the feet to the water, ready for them to drive the water backwards.

Step 3:

The legs sweep outwards, around and slightly downwards in a flowing circular path, accelerating as they kick.

There is much more to breaststroke leg kick than I can list here and a few images to help to make it visual is a massive help too. Follow the link below and get much more to help you out.
