Be aware that there has been considerable debate in this forum on the merits of coach Jamie Shaules' back-arch recommendations, which he may be reconsidering.

The general consensus here has been to hold reasonable core tension while not over emphasizing pelvic tilt. Others may chime in to refine that contention.

When I see swimmers who can't seem to get there legs in line with their body, I usually also observe an arch in the back. I teach them to tilt the pelvis in the opposite direction, and that usually helps.

You can feel this while standing up. Think about lifting the pubis bone. You'll feel the back flatten.
