1. Experitment with cutting out the dead spots, it may be for you.

Go FREESTYLE---ACTIVE-GLIDING

2. Staying low when you breathe helps you avoid popping up and falling down during your breath. It also ensures that your energy is used to go forward and not up.
Go FREESTLYE ---- SNEAKING UP-ON-AIR

3. The surface area of the paddle can help your hand slide, or ride, forward during extension as it braces your arm against the substance of the water. The larger surface area helps to hold your hand in that extended position.

Go FREESTTLYE---REACH-REACH-AND-GRAB

4. Options! Swimming is all about options, and learning which one works best for you, in sprinting, or long-distance swims. Sometimes what ends up being right, is the absolute opposite from everything you've heard. If you've not tried it, you'll never know.

Go FREESTLYE---HAND--SIDE-KICK

5. Learning to drive your stroke from your kick is one option to really swimming fast. Because many swimmers focus so much on the pull, switching your focus during sprints to the kick can help you develop a new tool.
Go FREESTLYE---FLUTTER-KICK-KICK-FOCUS

6. Freestyle is faster when you rotate through a solid tube in the water, rather than squiggle down the pool. This drill requires the swimmer to tighten the abs a bit to maintain the straight line through the entire body.
Go FREESTLYE---ANKLE-PULLl

7.Bad habits can form in practice without the swimmers really being at fault. Being aware of what's happening can help you control your own destiny.
Go Turns---practice--turns
