happy laps!

Truwani, that is a nice cozy pool!

Hi Tomoy,

Just curious what problems do you see this causing, if done correctly?

(This is the 10 degree wrist shift. The objective is to open the axila and then eventually restore the wrist back to level-position before initiating the pull. This way the elbow is still pointing to the pool side.)

Stillness is the greatest revelation.
