Early Vertical Forarm is opposite to Total Immersion very idea. Quite popular
among elite swimmers, but if you're not, you loose nothing.
One has to do an anchor, or catch or vertical forearm, sooner...

There is no reason to take into account non-balanced swimming.
More and more, personally, I appreciate recovery arm weight tip.
Head position and patient leading arm add to it. What differ for me

Terry's body shape is different than mine. I swim quite differently than he did.
I use lower part of the body patiently and wait with extended leading arm.
An anchor is the point of dispute. I wait...

I have a balance, quite easily.
Have to go to the pool to check out when I kick, but, out of the water,
I'm sure I use kick to enable "throw one side of the body". There is just
nothing to help me,...

As promised, I paid attention to kick timing during recovery phase.
Since lower arm is extended, holding the water, I see no way to throw upper
side and recover, than to use kick as support. Without...

It was so obvious to me, I never gave it second taught.
I'm not in a pool, so have to rethink the issue. On left flank, right arm starts
to recover. When starting to break the water surface, left leg...

Body is balanced and having low drag.
Lower side extended, with hand a bit down, holding the water. Upper side
recovers, throws that side with either leading elbow or with straight arm.
Contrary leg...

It will always be in limbo, since people want different things. :)
I found this vertical forearm to be important. Spite inner intention to pull,
I fight it and do not pull. I wait right time to...

Recall Bill Boomer video? His protegee throws recovery side. I lead with an elbow.
That in my brain makes something like "throw this side of the body and help it
with the kick". Spearing arm stays...

I think 2bk should be at recovery time. I do not say your timing is wrong for you.
For me it helps to throw recovery arm. An anchor comes later. not at the same
time. I tried it and my solution is:...

Eventually, after long time, I found the way to bend an elbow down in a
natural way, hold the water and use it as an "anchor". It all depends on
shoulder flexibility. In my case, shoulder should be...

Some of arguments here I see a bit different.
I open leading armpit and set head close to it. I rotate a lot, almost to the
flank. 2bk. Try to recover with leading elbow, openning armpit on that...

head position during breathing

I found my right shoulder was not as new, so I worked on it.
During breathing head is low, following shoulder, one eye out,
one eye in, Popaye mouth. Chin higher than top of the head.

I start to catch, with extended arm by dropping a hand. Arm is in inner
rotation, to say again.

Better not. Balance does. Kick helps recovery, I think.
Yep, balance is crucial. All starts from that....

early grabs water and tries to early pull and push. We don't pull or push. We

Hm! I keep leading arm extended far longer. I drop hand and start to hold
the water. How I rotate, I bend an elbow, holding more and more water,
doing that. At the moment elbow is at 90 degrees, I...

Hey, Zenturtle!
I assume we are on opposite sides of the topic. I pretty much like what Boomer

almost over-rotation...

As said before, never pull.
TI anchors a bit latter. Personally, I inner rotate

Have yet to see videos.
I think 2bk is fundamental for TI. Recovery connected to the hip, kick, glide.
I got better result with extended legs, like I try to get high fruits.
So, I have perfect anchor...

This marvelous video is in fact work-in-progress. Shows recovery momentum
and connection to the hip rotation.

The same principle works with bent arm. 2bk is crucial, at least two kicks that

For me, it is still extended and in inner rotation. I know what you are talking

It moves me and I could get an anchor.
