Thanks to both. I'll try and focus on the shrug.

Raising the scapula

At what moment precisely does one raise the scapula in the stroke? At the beginning of the recovery? At some point during the recovery? Some other moment?

Thanks.

One thing I notice is that she rotates her head ahead of her body when breathing. We had a thread about this recently, and here it's quite clear that the head isn't simply rotating with the body, but...

Thanks, Bob. This is interesting, because this is exactly the main difference I notice: I look further back on the good side when breathing. So I'll try focusing on that. I assume that means I'm...

Thanks.

Doesn't this test have more to do with shoulder flexibility? In any case, I see no difference between both sides.

Thank you, Richard. The term "nodding" is indeed very strange, and if I hadn't read the description I wouldn't have the faintest idea of what it meant in this context. I don't think it can have this...

Bad side blues

Since I started swimming (a little over 3 years ago), I've always breathed bilaterally. And I've always had a bad side (left). I've done my nodding drills, and more of them on by bad side (generally...

Thanks. But I'd be more interested in figures comparing the density of different body types - how much does it vary?

1062 kg/m3 = 1.062 g/cm3 Average human body...

Isn't it possible to to your NAD with a 2BK? (With small fins?)

(I don't understand all this kicking if the ultimate goal is a 2-beat kick.)

I think your point did come across. From what I understand, TI's "perpetual motion" applies to the whole stroke, but not specifically to the rotation, and that's the difference with the pendulum-like...

I find it difficult to swim so slowly without losing balance. Of course, if one uses a pull buoy, then the balance problem is solved. I'm old and slow, but can't swim that slow.

traction without pulling?

What's the difference between "creating traction" and "pulling"?

In other words, isn't it more a question of not focusing on the pulling rather than not pulling? ("Stop pulling on the water" would...

Are there any videos out there where you can see the timing of the patient hand and the rotation? I assume a front view would be the best (to see the rotation).

Thanks.

Not really. The spring has to be wound (given energy that it will give back) or the movement will stop. Even with no friction. The friction-less theoretical pendulum will go on forever.

What's not so cool is that it doesn't use gravity, but a spring.

Why? Can't you begin the "patient part" earlier in the rotation cycle, so that, when you switch, your hand has already been patient and is ready to move back?

Many thanks, Charles, for the detailed reply. Much appreciated. I see what you mean about it all ending up the same way, but it still often helps to think of the same thing a different way, and I...

Thank you, Charles. Wouldn't it make sense, then, to time the rest of the stroke on the rotation - in particular on the critical moment when the movement is reversed?

If you're doing a 2BK, where,...

Hesitation, or an actual pause, however short, on the edge? This was my question. A pendulum never pauses, though it may seem to "hesitate", since the verb doesn't refer to any precise physical...

Gravity doesn't pull you flat in a pendulum motion, but from one side to the other. And the motion is at it's fatest precisely in the middle. The slowest part is on each side. Which doesn't mean it...

Continuous rotation?

Does TI require a continuous rotation, i.e. a pendulum-like motion that never stops in a given position? Or does one rotate to one side, stay there for a certain time, however short, before rolling...
