The main thing is Balance & Streamline once you have control over that then anything goes.

When i first heard Richard Quick say "the last thing we're concerned about is what the arms & legs are doing" i thought WTF? but now i understand.
Going back and devoting time to balance drills a playing with static balance etc really paid off
the ability to sense when your breaking streamline or unbalancing is a must learn IMPO

I see the same folk week after week dragging hips & legs low underwater & addicted to pull buoys etc
all decent swimmers but just never worked at that balance & streamline
