Did it feel like silk?
Back from second pool session of the day, needed to solve the catch.
I was already "waiting" when my catch failed this morning, but I was not "slightly engaging the palm".
I tried (as a test) to catch with a totally loose palm and its impossible, the forearm muscles start to work when the palm is totally loose.

I have a radical change of understanding since yesterday when Richard made an effort to convince the donkey that he got it in reversed order: The arm should lead the body rotation, not the other way around as mr. donkey thought...
I always thought that "rotate the body just enough" is about how much propulsion I need for high SR or low SR, I didn't understand that its "just enough according to what the stroking arm needs". I was doing: "accellerate the arm just enough to suit the best body rotation you can create..." :) donkey logic.
I don't know on what to work next. Any ideas?
I counted a comfortable 15 SPL on 25M but its all dodgy and not solid yet. No problem doing a slow legit 10 SPL.
you must be a donkey before you become a dolphin.
