These sets are certainly valuable for some, I am sure. But for what I am concerned, what has attracted me to TI was the simplicity of the approach, of the language and of the logic of the drill...

I think that including videos of students, in addition to those of the coaches, would be an essential way to present what TI is about. I can think of at least 2 examples I have seen where displaying...

I will give it a try…the way I understand it, to talk about synergy we need to begin with two or more separate elements that cause the same effect. For instance, element A heats water to 20 degrees,...

Hi,

I also have similar symptoms to the ones you described and I have another friend who does. My exercise regime consists of swimming on average 2 times/week, 30 minutes each time, leisurely....

I also feel this when I swim, so I agree with your analogy regarding the feeling side of things. But in jumping a fence:

Again, a change of subject from 'free' propulsion by magical forces, to reducing drag, the importance of which we all agree on, and has nothing to do with this discussion.

The first law states that...

So the subject has now changed, I get. We are not saying that rotation generates propulsion, but that it aid streamlining.

Regarding your recovery arm comment, please explain how it generates...

I would like to watch a video. But if this is correct, then moving the body and the arm must displace water asymmetrically, as discussed many times, above and in the 'important new insight...'...

Do you refer to one arm freestyle? If so, one arm will be pushing water.

If not, do you imply that he can move forward across the pool just by rotation and spearing? If so, again as I suggest...

And in fact as I said, the force applied by the arm underwater is what provides propulsion. Not shooting the leading arm forward as you implied. The basic physics I'm referring to are Newton's laws...

You may see it like this,or you may feel it like this, but this is not the way it is.

Try spearing forward without pulling your opposite arm underwater.

And also, try rotating without pulling...

No, this is wrong. In the absence of gravity, swinging your arms would bring you nowhere, unless you apply force on an external body. This is basic physics, you are free to not believe it in, but...

I managed today to reach the 4th floor without using the lift, just by throwing both arms up in the air. What a feeling.

Can you point to me the post where I declared that I could provide a model to describe the movement of a swimmer’s body in water? No? And you know why? Because that post does not exist.

I will get back soon. Ironically, I'm in the middle of an experiment to explain some complex phenomenon (muscle wasting). Maybe I should give up and go down to the pub.
