SANTA CLARA, California, July 25. ONE of the most common mistakes in the breaststroke kick is separating the thighs and knees so much that the motion creates a high amount of drag, thereby negating the positive force of the kick. Today's dryland tip should help swimmers eliminate this bad habit by strengthening the adductor muscles in thighs.

Directions: Have each swimmer lie on their stomach with a dodge ball or exercise ball between their thighs. Next, have the swimmer squeeze this ball with their thighs, then bring their feet as wide as possible, while maintaining the same pressure at their thigh.

Perform for 15 - 20 repetitions.
