The eggbeater kick is a style of kicking where the swimmer's legs alternate one-legged breaststroke kicks. This form provides continuous support because there is no break in the kick.

The eggbeater kick allows the swimmer to freely use their hands, remain stable in the water without swaying, maintain a constant vertical position, and conserve energy[clarify].[citation needed] However, it can cause knee problems due to the circular rotation of the knee joint.
