I practice a similar technique, but base it on the 'hollow body' principle. A technique used by gymnasts. It really increases glide time.

To improve, you really need to look at what the weakest link is in your stroke.

It depends on how you interpret what is happening. Water molecules are round, and adopting a barge like shape to force your way through them only creates drag. TI is about becoming fishlike. Fish...

If you are training for speed, there really has to be a more dynamic extension of the arms. Opening of the arms is slow and controlled, as it should be.

Some things you can't learn from video, and you can't copy them. You have to intellectualise the theory and then apply it.

I think Terry covered the idea of 'continual propulsion' with his Perpetual Motion instruction videos. I can see the similarity in thinking, and the skating looks great fun by the way.

Recovery of the arm in freestyle means that one shoulder will be out of the water, due to rotation of the body. The shoulder drops when the recovering arm enters the water. In freestyle only one...

Tahevol, in my opinion, you are on the right track. As long as the more forceful kick results in a decreased SPL, or lap time.
If you are using the catch correctly, you can only benefit from a more...
