Default Raising the scapula

At what moment precisely does one raise the scapula in the stroke? At the beginning of the recovery? At some point during the recovery? Some other moment?

Thanks.

Hi Aquaris. I believe "shoulder" or "shoulder blade" is the lay person's term for "scalpula". Yes, above surface recovery initiates with with a "shoulder shrug" forward (toward ear) and swing elbow wide. Forearm remains relaxed or "rag doll", finger tips down. It's best to visualize recovery arm moving in continuous motion, maintaining momentum, rather than focus on when recovery starts or stops. Hope that helps

Stuart

Thanks to both. I'll try and focus on the shrug.
