thanks for the link to dshen's recovery video. Just last week I had the opportunity to watch some talented high school swimmers, and I found myself admiring one in particular. His recovery was utterly relaxed, with good momentum as if he was throwing his whole body weight into it, and with a straighter arm than the usual TI elbow-lead. And of course he was very fast and smooth.
I'm thinking now that he was doing pretty much exactly what dshen is talking about in his new recovery videos--more momentum, and the arm straighter because of the faster tempo he was swimming at.
Yep, I'll have to try this out. Thanks!
