How to do the breaststroke turn, and push off the wall. As you approach the wall, doing the breaststroke, you place both hands, you touch the wall with both hands, place your feet up against the wall sideways. One arm goes underwater in front of you, as the other arm recovers above the water for you to push off, glide, and do a proper pullout underwater, for breaststroke. After you touch the wall with both hands, and your feet are placed on the wall, your head comes out of the water for the turn. As your arm recovers, your face goes back into the water, you push off in a streamline position, and then you do an underwater pullout and breaststroke. That's how we do the breaststroke turn, and push off the wall.
