Point taken. I didn't think he was suggesting ARCHING the back, but rather, paying attention to the muscle tension in the lower back. I was thinking that the Pilates exercises like "swimming" (lying on the stomach, raising shoulders and legs off the floor, and raising and lowering opposite arm and leg, then lowering again) would be helpful in strengthening those muscles. I am still under the impression anyway, that core and back strength can be helpful in swimming with legs that don't drag.
