This article focuses on matters related to breaststroke swimming. An ideal breaststroke pullout begins with proper body alignment prior to pushing off the wall. Junior swimmer Dave Rollins, who is coached by Creg Rhodenbaugh at the University of Arizona, concentrates on placing his feet on the wall far below the surface, with his hands, head, hip and heels all being in a straight line parallel with the bottom just before pushing off. Dave pushes off on his side, then rotates onto his stomach. Another count of "one-thousand-and-three" is counted while the hands quickly recover under the body and the heels get into the power position.
