I mean reaching forward so that the shoulder and not just the arm moves forwards relative to the torso. Underwater shots of Grant Hackett are a good illustration.

I have a theory about why people, including TI swimmers, don't reach forward enough, by the way. It's that reaching more means rotating more, and rotating more means 'losing balance' more. Instinct tries to avoid that.
