I think you can follow a tighter central line, your right arm is pulling straighter than your left so some of your propulsion is moving you sideways rather than forwards. In other words, try to shorten the course.

If you are moving off a perfect straight line (twelve oclock) left to right by only 20deg (with position one on the clock being 33, 2 being 66 and 3 being 90 degress) then you will be swimming 6% further each length. Small enough to not notice on any individual stroke but adds up to 26.5m per length instead of 25.

You can check this by positioning yourself exactly in the middle of the black tile line and checking your eyes are either side of the middle line at all times.

A little off base here, but just out of curiosity, what kind of camera did you use?

I bought a muvi hd.7. I think the quality is excellent for something this price. You can find more info here.

Tksfor the info--looks pretty good--your video is really clear and sharp

Two more questions--does it support Windows 7? I think I read that it only goes up to Vista for system requirements.

Also, did you get something to mount it to the pool wall?

tks for your help

Sherry

I use it with XP and windows 7 home premium. It works like any USB storage device.

The pool I film in has a very convenient ledge just below the water level which the camera fits in very nicely. Otherwise it comes with a variety of clamps etc.

Default Watch this video for modeling balance

Kudos to you for seeking improvement tips.


Your video reminded me of this one by Kris.

Watch Frames :15-:18.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3Uq...ture=endscreen

See how his feet are VERY close together at that second of maximum reach.

Watch how his heels almost touch the surface of the water at that point as well.

Good luck with your Kaizen approach to improving your swimming.

Mike
