My goal for the new style is to first learn how to do full stroke without doing any work at all with my arms, just syncing them to the rest of the motion, in which case the effort should not be significantly different than body dolphin. This would hopefully provide a safe basis to work from with my bad shoulder. Anything I achieve beyond that is just icing on the cake for me right now.

Thanks again for your help.
Body dolphin is way harder for me. Like jogging wiht your hands in your pockets vs letting the arms swing...the latter is much easier.
