In real freestyle, the opposing arm is extended and this effect is more subtle, but it is still there.
You should not be bobbing and certainly not be using the aforementioned Bob to help you breathe.

I don't like the one armed drills for freetstyle in any of its form actually but if you find benefit in it then of course use it.
