True swimming power comes from the hips, which makes the Hydro Hip such an important training tool. With two blades that sit on the hips, the Hydro Hip helps swimmers properly identify timing of the hips, arms and body. The Hydro Hip also improves core strength with resistance by working the muscles that aid in rotation. Best used during drills or short distances, the effects of the Hydro Hip are most felt when removed and the lessons of timing remain.


Benefits
Rotation is one of the most commonly used descriptors while coaching freestyle and backstroke. The person who is able to swim “tall” in the water is someone who maximizes their rotation and makes themselves as long or tall as they can be from the tip of their big finger to the bottom of their opposite big toe. The timing of the rotation is absolutely critical in achieving maximum enlistment of core strength, which translates to more power and more distance per stroke.

At PAQ we emphasize proper body position for all strokes. The FINIS Hydro Hip is a crucial tool for developing core strength and bringing awareness to hip rotation! It is amazing how quickly the swimmer can feel a difference, and the tool makes it easy for the on-deck coach to spot imbalances in hip movement as well.

Hip Rotation Review by Coach Will

The hip rotation is great for working with new swimmers of all ages. I have used to product with masters swimmers and age group swimmers, and I find it extremely useful when teaching the swimmer to rotate their body and keep their cores tight.

Hip Rotation Belt Amazing! Review by Kathy

This product is essential to learning proper hip rotation technique, to get the feel in the water. With the proper rotation, you are set up for a high elbow recovery and angle to drive the hand forward for stroke entry.

Amazing how much drag "resistance" you get from a simple fin. Great device! Can also improve lateral rib breathing if worn snug around the waist.
