noun - Head-up swimming is swimming freestyle or breaststroke with one's head held above the surface of the water. The head can be held up for only a few arm strokes while sighting or for longer periods of time.

Head-up freestyle allows the swimmer to keep their face out of the water and their eyes looking forward and to the side as the head swings side-to-side. The arm strokes are generally shorter compared to traditional or head-down freestyle with a faster stroke tempo, higher elbows on the front catch, and a lower hip position.
