    I thought I'd post a poll to see what everyone's favorite swim stroke was.

    For me its front crawl (I have a feeling this is the same for most people).

    I honestly don't have one. I don't even what this means.

    You've never heard these names/terminology? You don't do much swimming I'm guessing... or watch the Olympics?

    I like freestyle front crawl i think its by far the easiest one to learn:)

    I use the front crawl and since I'm very lazy I try to be as streamlined as possible but the older you get the more un-streamlined we tend to become!

    I love to swim but I can honestly say I don't know the different strokes.
    My sons take swim lessons and learn them, and it's fun to watch.

    Breast stroke FTW! Although sometimes it creeps into the butterfly and vise-versa. Ah, the headaches I used to give my swim coach.

    I would have to say breast stroke, as it's most comfortable for me.

    I prefer overarm, which I think is the same as front crawl. I find it less draining than other styles and I can swim around fairly fast. Breast stoke is the one I use the second most, its nice and relaxing once you know how to do it properly. I've never been able to master the butterfly, no matter how many times I tried, I gave up because I just looked ridiculous

    Some sort of front crawl probably. I just get my head under the water and start a high intensity swim for like 10-15 seconds. That's all I can take without breaqthing haha

    It surprises me how fast I can swim that way. Hopefully I'll achieve such speed with other styles this summer.

    Lots and lots of practice coming up.. :)

    I am best at the backstroke. And for me it is fun cause I love to look up at the sky. I have always been fastest when I swim the backstroke too. And this is weird, but I can't do the breaststroke very well at all. Just seems strange to me. But I never got the hang of it.

    I had to say backstroke. I love laying on my back and using flippers on my feet to float and kick & flutter my toes to move along in a lake or deep stream. This is the easiest way of swimming for beginners and old folks to enjoy being in the water. I also do a front or doggy paddle when I am to lazy to do the breast stroke. lol

    I prefer breast stroke when I am in the water. I do excel in swimming using different methods ,but I like the breast stroke method. The most important thing is not to drown in the water.

    I like the freestyle because it is the fastest for me, even if energy inefficient. The breast stroke is fun for relaxing though.

    You know for the record I also enjoy dolphin kicks - however I am still working on my technique. That said I like using it for when I need to pick up some speed really quick.
