How to Do Sculling | Swimming Lessons


Sculling sets the foundation for any swimming
stroke, for treading water, for any sort of exercises or recreational swim that you might
be doing during the time of swimming. Sculling pretty much is a movement of palms
and forearms, that create propulsion for you to stay on top of the water and also give
you the feeling and the efficiency of the strokes. There are a couple of ways to do sculling. First, you can do sculling by going on your
belly, keeping your face in the water, and having your arms at a 90 degree angle, and
having your palms rotate in and out of the water to help you scull and propel through
the water. You want to minimize any sort of movement
that might occur from your shoulders, or more from your arms, because then this is not becoming
sculling, it is becoming more of a stroke exercise. Sculling can also be done with your arms forward,
in front of you, to move forwards or backwards with your feet first, or with your head going
forward. And, sculling can be done with your arms at
your sides to move your feet first, or your head forward. A great way to practice sculling is to begin
with your arms in front of you, and just scull all the way through underneath your body as
you’re on your belly. As you get down to your hips, recover your
arms close to your chest, up, back to the original position, and again, scull all the
way through by moving your palms through the water to make it more efficient.

  1. It was impossible to ignore that clown doing the worst front crawl ever behind the guy at around 40 seconds into the vid like wtf

  2. Thank you! This helped me a lot because tomorrow I am going to do sculling on my swim team! This will help!

  3. that guy talking in the orange T-shirt looks terrifyed!! lol, nice job i found this helpful x

  4. head up, crossing, legs sinking…man behind narrator, don't look behind you! and by the way, most of that, not sculling, more waving arms around!

  5. Unfortunately there is a lot of incorrect demonstrations in this article . Sculling should provide a consistent, continuous pressure on the water. Both the narrator and the demonstrator do not demonstrate this correctly.
