Compare Recovery

I'm wondering what TI coaches think of the recovery demonstrated here at about 17:12. It's not the relaxed recovery of TI, but seems like it might aid...

This is beginning to make sense to me. I had been focusing on kicking and pulling on the same side because I'd found that to be quite tricky when trying to learn the two-beat kick. Today, when I...

anchoring the hand

I sure wish I could get the hang of anchoring the hand and forearm. Unfortunately, I am still pushing water back--and slipping a lot of it.

bounce

I have felt such a bounce at times, but it's my understanding that the up and down movement will slow you down.

not breathing to focus on stroke

I have tried something like this in order to focus only on stroke and rotation. What I found was that I seem to be "digging" into the water a bit. I actually end up deeper in the water--not two feet...

Breathe Late?

I just watched Terry's YouTube demo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC8ZZZhabp4) again and found something I had not seen before. He breathes very late in his stroke. In fact, it appears that he is...

timing

What struck me in the video that Borat posted is that the spearing arm enters before the kick happens. I think I may be kicking first and perhaps that is why I get so little propulsion. I'll have to...

It all points back to TI

I tried this drill again today after quite a long time since my first attempt. The first time I tried it, I couldn't do it at all. Today, I could do the drill for almost 20 metres. Found that I must...

Hi Imran,
I wouldn't say this necessarily holds true for everyone, but in my experience, I needed to learn better balance and a proper arm stroke before focusing on my kick. My kick for quite some...

Different Pool

OK, I just had a weird experience in the pool today. I hadn't gone swimming in almost two weeks because my usual pool is closed for almost all of September for annual maintenance. Couldn't stand not...

timing

Thanks for this point, Coach Kevin. So how does one achieve the elusive timing? I suppose it's just like everything else--devoting time and attention to it and being patient with oneself.

One TI coach's view

Found something with a search on this forum. According to Coach Kevin, timing is everything:

I have found myself drifting a bit to the right at times and noticed that, while my right arm was bending at the elbow, my left arm was not, or at least not very much. I've gotten better at bending...

I think the DVD "Perpetual Motion Freestyle in 10 Lessons" is a very good place to start.

Possibly, but what I'm really feeling, and it is very pronounced, is that my left arm just cannot coordinate the movements. In fact, when I was first learning how to swim about 4-5 months ago, I...

terminology

Thank you.
