Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Ask any swimmer what the most challenging stroke to perfect is, and chances are they'll respond by saying it's the butterfly. In this instructional swimming release, Total Immersion founder Tony Laughlin introduces viewers to a series of drill sequences designed to help them perfect the Butterfly Stroke. The lesson begins with a live demonstration in which Laughlin demonstrates and explains each step while highlighting the skills needed to accomplish the movements and how they relate to the subsequent skills in the sequence. As Laughlin continues, underwater footage of the host swimming the Butterfly in a current pool shot from six distinctive angles allows the viewer to study the movements of the swimmer more closely than ever before. Later, after the viewer watches TI coaches highlight common errors in the key drills and whole strokes, Laughlin shows viewers how they can remain efficient swimmers well into middle age.
