T30s are useful, IMO!

So, I am going to start the opposite side of this discussion and say that I think T30s have their place even as a monthly exercise. I have been using them with select swimmers ever since they were...

All very good points...

Wow...all very good points.

These kind of play off of some of the points above:

- Constantly looking for new ways to explain things (analogies etc). While a certain explanation may make perfect...

Defenitely looks like a great new product

I just ordered 10 of them to use with my swimmers.

I have been waiting for the new model to come out but I heard it was going to be much more expensive (like $80)...so I was pleased to see the $50...

Synergistic Swimmers

Hi Terry,

I like all of your defenitions but I thought I would jump in and help with the fourth category. I actually agree with Naji that it could be left out and just let Kaizen be the third and...

Exactly...you had it before

Hey Christian,

Thanks for the video with the 2bk.

I'll explain more on "1":

If you look at your video with the 2bk, on the above water view, you see your hand enter the water with the forearm at...

Some Thoughts

Hi Christian,

I didn't see the last video so I am not able to comment on any improvements but I will give you some thoughts on this video.

1) Entry and depth of lead arm: Since there is no above...

It's not automatic for me yet

Hi bx,

I can't say that I am able to maintain the proper pelvic tilt subconciously at this point. I do use it as a focal point in my swimming quite often and I feel as though I do it quite easily...

Yes, for sure!

Hi Rose! Great to see you on the forums! I am hoping to make it to the coach summit this year in MN. Maybe I will see you there and swim with you again! Thanks for adding some good advice to this...

It can be done.

bx,

Flattening the back in skating or SG is difficult to say the least. However, it can be done without kicking and without the legs dropping. It is possible that part of the reason your legs drop...

Need more info

Hi Alex,

The numbers you ask for are very much dependent on several different variables...one being the swimmer's height. Terry has provided some stroke counts (SPL) ranges to shoot for given...

Bring it!

Westy,

No worries then! Coach Dave will take good care of you. He is the one that certified me as a TI coach and I keep in contact with him on almost a daily basis.

Ask him if he is getting his...

Minneapolis

Westy,

You say you are heading to Minneapolis for coaching...with whom? Dave Cameron?

You are quite welcome for the analysis. Thanks for posting your video and I will look forward to seeing your...

alignment

Actually, I would say that superman glide is number one for alignment with skating a close second. You can also do laser lead flutter and laser lead twist.

Sometimes just thinking of your legs...

Golf!

Hey Westy,

I agree...I am very much a fan of the newer way of incorporating whole stroke into the TI workshops more. In fact, most of the ones that I have been involved in have used tempo trainers...

Yes...I believe so

Clay,

Yes, I believe you have it right. The catch provides an anchor point for the rest of the body to move past...much like you describe.

Video is viewable

Hi Westy,

I took a look at the video. I think your self analysis is pretty good. There is a bit of over-rotation on the breath strokes (and maybe a little on the regular strokes as well), elbow...

I too cannot view the video without downloading quicktime. I use Vimeo for a lot of my swim videos...it is much like youtube but but a little better in some ways. I like the format of...

Coach in Turkey

Hi Tufana,

I think the relaxation you will find in your stroke when you learn TI will likely solve your issues.

Where in Turkey do you live? There is actually a TI coach in Antalya. His name is...

More Propulsion

Spider and Westy,

Do either of you have videos of your swimming that are recent? That would help a lot. It is difficult to say what the issue could be without seeing you swim.

However, I will...

The way I read your question, I think you have the right idea. Could I rephrase it to say "Where is my recovery hand when I begin to press and move the lead hand back following the...

When to kick and spear

All,

In my experience the kick happens just as your recovery hand enters the water ("through the mail slot" as Terry says). The kick initiates the rotation of your body which drives the spearing...

The other foot

Hi JC,

To answer your question, I wouldn't say that your other foot needs to remain "static" when you kick, I would say that it needs to remain "relaxed" and "streamlined". In other words, it...
