Following a narration of a full stroke demonstration of the ideal freestyle Busch moves into several key drills that are at the heart of the Arizona brand of freestyle swimming. Rick Demont discusses the role of upper extremity angles and elevations for successful freestyle.

To connect the parts to the whole of the stroke, Greg Rhodenbaugh shares a drill series with varying arm positions of the recovering arm that reinforce the elements of Arizona freestyle. Augie Busch next takes on the issue of body rotation as it pertains to leverage for the stroke, sharing a drill progression that address a swimmer's connection of the catch to the body roll and kick. Each of the segments concludes with elite swimmers doing a descending set of 4 x 25's that gives a clear cut look at how each of the drill progressions relate to the stroke efficiency and speed. 112 minutes. 2006.
