Default new video (V17)

For those who are interested and/or those who like to comment. Latest video of myself (V17), done yesterday:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2dOa-CYzGU

IMHO looks the best for me so far:
- smooth and easy rythm
- legs less and easier, and more behind the body core (less of a scissor kick)

Thanks for any thoughts, critics and comments! :-)

Nice. Hips at surface, feet in the shadow, nice line and balance, good rotation, one goggle wet - even got the EVF going on. Whatever you're doing, keep on doing it. What kind of times/SC/SRs are you at? Great job.

@jriley:
Thanks. On my youtube site there is the whole history of me learning from the beginning, starting with TI. I see clear improvement to V16 (which was not good I admit), and even to V15 and V14. It would be good to capture and understand the difference(s), so I never lose it/them again. My problem is, sometimes I feel improving, sometimes I feel I'm losing 'it' again...

SC = ?

Some best times/stroke rates, all on short track (25m):
3000m: 41:50 min, SR between 14 (first half) and 16 (2nd 1/2)
1000m: 13:23 min, not sure about SR, think must have been 16
6x200m with ~50sec rest: 2:34 min avg (at SR 15, 16 at the end)
8x100 with ~ 40 sec rest: 1:12.9 min avg (at SR 15 and tempo trainer frequency -> 0.98 sec)
Min strokes per 25m: 8
normally my SR is ~15, sometimes 14 in the beginning, gets 16 when it gets faster. I don't swim drills, I like intervals. I'm aware that I'm not average, but I worked very hard for that.

watched you yesterday as I have subscribed to your channel.

I agree this is your best one, there is very little pause now in your stroke and you are carrying momentum forward all the time.

Its how I would like my stroke to look in a year or so.

keep posting the updates

Is your pool getting dirtier or your lens cap need a clean?

Why did you lose the nice 2 beat kick? Looked good in V08...

meridien96 well done, it's great to see how your stroke progressed over time piece by piece.
Can I ask, do you maintain this kick over 3000m+?
Secondly can you briefly explain to me how you now keep your hands and arms in that nice high position close to the surface....drills, or through effort and eventually fitness?
