Swim technique

May 11th, 2007

As promised, here’s the video of my swim technique. A few points which I’m working on are: a) lowering head, b) extending wrist at end of pull, c) higher elbow entry while eliminating/reducing glide phase, d) more rotation about elbow during early part of catch, and starting catch earlier, e) aligning wrist/elbow/shoulder at point when shoulders are abducted 90° (wrist/hand are shown as slightly lagging back),…at this point, my wrist and hand need to be further underneath my elbow, f) from head on view,…some fishtailing (lateral side to side motion) is noted – a stronger core and more anchoring from kick would help reduce this.
