Btw, MF. What do we know about you, your swim background, where you from (Perth?), coaching experience, favorite places you swim, etc. Remaining anonymous given the amount of time you spend daily on the TI forum doesn't help your credibility.
Yes i agree
I'm making the point that Coupling usually refers to coupling the arms together through the upper back
ie shoulder driven / kayak or windmill straight arm
I'am based in hampshire England i swim at Bitterne leisure centre & The Quays most week nights.
I'm not a coach, just interested in swimming and like to study, had some great insights here.
