The correct body position allows you to become more streamlined, improving your efficiency in the water.
Keep your head in a neutral position, facing the ceiling directly above you. This keeps you as high as possible in the water.
Pull your stomach in, flattening your back to eliminate arching. This will help you maintain your high, straight position.
