Looks like a swimmer making progress to me. It is a big kick and long glide but that is a big improvement. As the kick tightens up and the streamlining improves and the stroke rate comes up a bit I...

I'm not an expert coach but it seems you are kicking with both legs at once in a scissor kick. Try just kicking with just one leg and make sure it is the leg opposite the spearing arm. Just my 2...

It is pretty funny that tech suits were banned to keep competition more "fair" but the discrepancies in training budgets far outstrip any advantage in the pool.

What I want are some goggles that...

For a sun or phelps swimming is a full time job involving many people in support and hours of stretching and physio and cross training and analysis etc. but at the end of it all it is the athlete...

I'm sure world record holders strive to improve every practice and every stroke and at this point sun is probably his own best coach and probably his own harshest critic too. The thought of sun...

I agree. Watching motion is very useful. I wonder how much any coach can change the stroke of a swimmer like sun at this point. Or if they would want too. Perhaps little details on streamlining? His...

I meant to add that when people are critical of "glide" I like to remind them of the rule "primum non nocere" ("first, do no harm")
When you are moving forward nicely why rush and upset what you...

The problem with looking at swimming frame by frame is that it is meaningless. Sun looks slow with little propulsion and lots of drag in still frames but we know that is not the case. He is fast,...

Yeah I should have described the "biomechanical advantage" as a "biomechanical difference" but I just stuck with the original wording. I don't think that it really matters in the water, at least...

For me there is a biomechanical advantage to spear elbow down because I get a few inches more reach. This may not actually move the effective catch any further forward but I can reach further if I...

It seems sun is doing what I was describing to coach Suzanne with an elbow down entry and then rotating the elbow for evf as his wrist drops?

All this is about setting up effective catch and dps....

That's a very effective way to visualize it. My only concern is that for some it would be too much internal rotation. In effect if your elbow points to the side you would spear the water thumb down...

Thank you Charles, I get it now. I agree that Suns catch looks very early and steep. He is also effectively sprinting compared to Shinji and Terry and Sun has a faster stroke rate (slow by modern...

The photo Charles posted pretty much says it all. That photo might as well be of a dolphin as far as my shoulders are concerned. The worlds elite swimmers are great role models up to a point but we...

No wonder he doesn't want to swim ever again. I wouldn't either. Phelps has worked hard enough and contributed enough, and sufferred enough for 22 lifetimes. If he just wants to lay on the couch...
