It could be the position of your hands as they come over the surface .TI butterfly recovery is now palms down facing the surface rather than the back of the hand facing forward which causes less strain on the arm . Also if you feel as if you have to muscle your way to the surface for a breath by using your arms instead of body rhythm that can put an extra load on the arms .Your undulations should send your hands out of the water and then your arms should be relaxed on the recovery .
