020 SWIMMING TECHNIQUE MISCONCEPTIONS: BREASTSTROKE BREATHING
By Rod Havriluk

A common technique misconception is that a breaststroker should not change the angle at the neck to breathe. Typical advice is to maintain the non-breathing neck angle when breathing to avoid straining the neck and cuasing resistance by dropping the hips. However, swimmers can actually minimize resistance without neck injury by using the full range of motion of the neck to breathe.
