Do you recognize any of these posture problems?

Good luck,
Hi Radswim,
1. indeed I have a steep and deep leading arm. But that's something I can not change because I have to keep my balance in the water.
2. I didn't notice a deep head position but maybe this can be caused by kicking incorrectly, like Shuumai mentioned (see reply above)
3. My kick is certainly not good and I have poor core stability, so this can be a cause too. I started now with dryland core stability excercises. Hope this will help!

Aiai I have a lot of work to do!!!
But if I only have it when I pause is it necessery to try to prevent the sinking problem during overswitch? If I swim normal, I don't have a lot of problems with breathing so this means my body is not too deep, I suppose...
