Hi Stuart,

Two suggestions, which may have already occurred to you:
1) Might it be possible to experiment with both forms to get a feel for which is better or, possibly, if both are worth having?

Hi Stuart,

Hi Stuart,

For whatever it's worth, I do see differences in the catch as Terry does it and, for example, as Shinji does it. There is also a lot in common between their two strokes. My suspicion is...

ZT, to answer your question
" do you mean you go to a lower shoulder angle (more flat) before going to catch? Thats what I was describing as the TI way ?"

ZT, I prefer this film of Terry, because it shows his stroke from underwater.

OK ZT, which of these two styles would you say Terry is swimming in the underwater shots of his stroke? His forward hand is almost beneath his shoulder when the upside hand first enters the water. Is...

James, if you mean that you should not introduce a Bob into your stroke for the purposes of facilitating breathing, then I agree with you totally.

So I suppose that one way to explain the virtue of the one-armed drills is to note that your extended arm can be used to cover a lot of balance and stroking problems by compensating for them. When...

This bobbing motion is more pronounced in the one arm drill because the opposing arm is down at your side and not extended. When the opposing arm is extended, it supports the weight of the recovering...
