The Forearm Fulcrum Paddles develop Early Vertical Forearm (EVF) and increase stroke efficiency. An EVF position utilizes the entire forearm during the pull, from the fingertips to the elbow. When using the Forearm Fulcrum for stroke refinement, the paddles promote muscle memory of the proper hand, wrist and forearm position. The Forearm Fulcrum improve efficiency and help maintain a strong, uninterrupted pull from the very beginning to the end of the stroke. The Forearm Fulcrum is beneficial for all four competitive strokes.
PROMOTES EARLY VERTICAL FOREARM (EVF): Connects forearm and hand into a single surface by not allowing wrist to bend
TEACHES A HIGH ELBOW POSITION: Calls for a high catch by lifting the elbow
OPEN, FIGURE-EIGHT SHAPED DESIGN: Develops correct stroke muscle memory and prevents shoulder stress without losing the feel for the water against the forearm and palm of the hand
FOCUS ON TECHNIQUE DEVELOPMENT: Specifically designed for stroke refinement and technique work
IMPROVES EFFICIENCY: Maintains a strong, uninterrupted pull
ALL FOUR STROKES: Promotes EVF catch during all four competitive strokes
