The Frog Kick & A TKR

Hi my favorite readers! It’s always fun learning new things and a particular one has come to my attention lately that I believe is worthy of sharing. It’s about the frog kick and a tkr.

The frog kick is the term given to how the legs move during a swimming technique known as the breaststroke. The movement is called that since it resembles what a frog looks like when swimming. You probably knew that, but I thought I’d share anyways. When done correctly, it’s a pretty site. At least, it’s supposed to be.

I’ve been working on my breaststroke. The movement looks much easier than it actually is. Other people in the pool look simply majestic doing it. It appears effortless and very calming. It’s fun to watch others.

For myself, however, the leg movement is something else. The kick is supposed to consist of three parts – bending the knees, separating the legs and thrusting by straightening the legs. I know the workout is still pretty good, but I tell you, it takes a special effort with a total knee replacement joint in position. That’s my reasoning, anyways. First of all, the kick is not much of a kick. That’s what happens when the knee doesn’t bend more than 95 degrees. :) Anyways, the outward motion can be tricky. Same goes for the inward motion. Sometimes there’s cramps anywhere in the inward portion of my thigh..even down to my foot. It’s fun when it goes well, though. So far, I can only do a few kicks and need to go back to the Marie stroke. (The Marie stroke is an underwater- modified version of the doggy paddle.) Not that I’m complaining, mind you. I’m very grateful for swimming and all it provides.

Hopes this helps others going through the same thing. Do you have any stories to share about the frog kick? Feel free to share!
