CATCH/PULL

Strong Points

Both sides, catch is starting with the entry of the other hand

 

Weak Points

Both sides, arm is too straight, scooping too deep

Both sides, pulling arm back before gathering with forearm (before early vertical forearm is established better)

 

Improvement Opportunities

Get a bigger grip on the water before pulling back

 

ARM SWITCH TIMING

Strong Points

Both sides, appears to be about right for this tempo

 

Weak Points

None to point out at this time.

Let’s see how the other changes affect this.

 

Improvement Opportunities

None to recommend at this point.

Let’s see how the other changes affect this.

 

BREATHING

Strong Points

Continuing lead arm extension while turning/returning from breathing

Very quick sip of air

Breathing bilaterally

 

Weak Points

Turning head at the same speed as the torso is turning

The recovery arm passes over your face it is turning back down

 

Improvement Opportunities

Turn toward air a fraction of a second sooner, and a bit more aggressively

Get to air slightly sooner, finish sooner

The head returns ahead of the recovery arm – you should not see your own arm passing overhead.
