where do we exert pressure?

Pull too soon
when is it too soon? Lets say you still use front quadrant timing. Is it too soon if you are still at the edge of front quadrant timing?

What do you mean by "at the edge of"? You are an engneer, you understand coupling motions? Front Quadrant means what? What is the purpose of "Front Quadrant"? Do you know? What does it achieve and how? Let's try and explore and understand these terms.*
We are seeking to remain as streamlined as possible between the strokes whiuls creating coupling motuoins through combing catch, wieght shift and kick (whether 2 beat, 4 beat or 6 beat)

I got told by Coach Dougal

Coupling is combining forces together. No need for straight arm

figure 4 is on the edge of front quadrant.
One arm lands in the water while the other is 90 degrees down.
If both arms are in front of head during cycle, you are swimming in front quadrant.
Its mostly to keep the weight in front of the lungs to help balance, for a hipdriven stroke with weight shifts, and for staying long most of the time

mushroom have you already worked your way through this thread?

Long, but interesting at times.
