About This Article
To flutter kick, start by pushing one of your legs down into the water with your toes pointed and turned slightly inward. Then, as your leg is floating back up in the water, repeat with your other leg. Continue alternating your legs and increasing your speed, making sure your feet aren’t breaking the surface of the water. To practice flutter kicking, try holding onto a kickboard so it’s easier to propel yourself forward. You can also push off from the pool wall before flutter kicking to give yourself some momentum.
