Hi Danny,

A late question about this, do you mean you do this while swimming or on dry land? I don't think shoulder mobility is a problem for me generally. My shoulders are rather too loose for my...

That story reminds me of my own state a few years ago. The only clue in there though is your focus on your hips. My advice would be to not put so much energy into that. It is really amazing how much...

"Rotate off your stomach (but not on your side.)

"Rotate off your stomach (but not on your side)."

I don't, that's why I posted ... Good news ... Possible useful experience for others. Maybe not.

I take breaths when I need. But I try things I can't yet do, and grow.

Hi Danny,

I think we may actually be saying the same things. At least it seems so to me. But I think you are a swimmer from long before TI ?

I've taken it for granted until now that as technique improves so too will my pace. Now I'm idly wondering if it is quite so straightforward.
