ZT, Danny:

You guys are making this process far more complex than it needs to be. Awareness is great, but micromanaging all of the complex movements will leave swimmers completely tangled up, frustrated and completely confused in the water. And I think I saw something in the noise about Terry's stroke being a good example/promo for Swim Smooth? That's hilarious although I suspect your pal paul2121 would be thoroughly insulted :-)

The best and most succinct description of how the high and low-side arms work together, accessing the large muscle groups of the the core (not the weak/injury prone shoulders) from a coach who really knows what he's talking about and has a gift for delivering a clear message is Coach Dave Cameron and his video on "High Elbow Catch". It's been posted on many threads over the years and this one provides another opportunity. Select this link:
