So you want to swim fast? Propulsion. (PART THREE!)

Once you have worked on the specific techniques to help reduce drag in the water and improve streamlining, you can work on increasing propulsion in the water. Propulsion is improved first and foremost by working on stroke mechanics and then becoming efficient in applying a force to the water. The combined effects of body balance, streamlining and good stroke mechanics are what lead to faster swimming.
