I am a beginner in swimming and it's been just 5 days into instructor lead coaching in the pool. I have mastered floating and classes are focused on freestyle.
I still don't know if I am kicking right. Here are the problems I face:
I am confused when someone says to kick straight leg, since my research on the internet and youtube is that everyone bends their knees to some extent
When I start kicking I do move forward at very slow pace ( may be 8 kicks to get distance of 8 feet covered), but at some point of time i feel am unable to even lift my leg( sort of feels numb and then disappears as though nothing happened)
Should my foot come outside the surface of water?
Should I push the water surface when kicking(that might push me forward) ?
Is there a video, resource or anything that shows me how to kick properly with a illustration (may be in slow motion)
