I think when I try to kick six times, I kick too fast. The fins slow me down, but I run out of pool pretty quick. So maybe I'm using too much force.

I feel that I need to develop a more dynamic 6-beat kick. I know to kick from the hip, but I also notice that the knees need to bend, especially if the toes/ankles don't bend a lot. While working on that, should I not use the fins?
