You sent me looking Sclim, and it was worth it, thanks. The translation into Latin and English from Hippocrates' Greek :

Thanks Suzanne.

It seems that there either a smooth progression (logarithmic) of force (i.e acceleration of the arm) for the whole u/w or a transition point, where the zero force of catch is...

Thanks for giving the credit to ZT (and thanks for your replies ZT!) I'd missed his post. He and I must have hit submit at the same time.

Not sure I'm following you Werner. Maybe you can clarify?...

Fantastic bit of work Andy!! Thanks. It's left me reeling after my first time viewing but it 's going to get some devoted study over the coming weeks, so some queries.

I sometimes get that feel but as soon as I do it goes. Your focal point sounds interesting. Do you mean abdomen-upper leg, or is is from the navel to the knee? Where is the point in the body you...

Hi Werner, you asked: "how to get the grip as if the water has 4kg weights at just right place and just right moment when we exactly need them in our strokes?" A thought in response to this is...

Not someone else ;) but fwiw, the answer is yes. If you spear with the wrist it will create huge drag, like slamming on the air brakes of a plane, and at just the moment your propulsive force is...

The 4kg weights image works for me. There could be a series of them, in place of those rungs of a ladder.

I begin to feel the water as the catch is being formed (at least on one side!) but I've not...

I very much like #1 but get lost on #2. As my body is travelling forward, any downward angle of hand/arm produces a resistance (backward force) that pushes my hand/arm backwards relative to my body....

Hi Werner

Yup, I know that wayward SPL feeling really too well!!

I think what happens is that improvements in technique throw out of balance previous parts of the technique. Each part of the...
