The clinic was about four and a half hours. We started with an intro and discussion. Then got in the water and she recorded us swimming. She went through a brief overview with some practice. Then we got out of the water and watched our videos with discussion, then went over the technique in more detail with some exercises to show body positions. After that we got in the water again and practiced the new stroke, comparing it to our old strokes. Then she did another video of our new strokes. We went up and watched the after videos with more discussion. It was very extensive and because it was limited to 12 people, there was a lot of personal interaction.

Michelle were you in the water for this clinic? Did you get actual practice with her instruction?

Sounds very interesting. I am not the greatest of swimmers..one reason is because I have muscle bound shoulders (yes, it can happen to women). Thanks for the information.

I went to this clinic last night and it was very helpful. It is taught by Karlyn Pipes-Neilsen, and the stroke she teaches is the latest and greatest used by competitive swimmers, but it has not yet trickled down to everyone. It is very different from the stroke I was taught in high school, but she encouraged us all to try it and compare it with other techniques to see what works. Basically it is a very wide stroke like paddling a surfboard, with the power in the front of the stroke rather than the back, and the focus is on the wrist so the lats are engaged rather than the smaller muscle groups.

Karlyn is based in Kona but she travels the world putting on clinics. She is an excellent instructor, very positive and encouraging. She also sells a dvd.

I registered, so I'll let you know. It looks like she does these clinics all over the country and also has a dvd.

Just wondering if anyone has taken an Aquatic Edge Faster Freestyle Clinic? There is one coming up at my gym and I'm tempted. For $135 it includes before and after video review.
