Thanks for your interest and suggestions. I appreciate everyone's contribution and suggestions to help me with my swimming deficiencies.
Eric, I definitely have less flexibility turning my head to the right side, a stiffness on the right side neck muscles. So, I have begun mild neck stretching exercises.
I also have spent more time at the pool skating on my left armpit, rolling to my side / back for air. I notice that as I roll, after a second or so, I will bob to the surface. So I am not at the surface when I start my rotation to air but somewhat submerged, I think.
Anyway, I will take your suggestions to the pool today focusing on stability and balance and will work on that control drill, sounds great. This is exciting, I'm positive I can make this happen. A symmetrical rotation could be in my future.
Many thanks again Eric (from another Eric)
