Checking for over rotation and anchor with

Postby smootharnie » Wed Aug 03, 2016 9:18 am

If you are overroating or have your cacth too much under the body you go nowwhere during this drill.
If you get good surges out of your pulls preventing the body falling over the edge your doing great,
His pull at the 21 and 30 second mark suffers a bit from this effect.

if you are underrotating the swinglike rotation stops, so it trickyy to get the right balance.

Me too!
If I focus on his arms, one of my eyes rotates clockwise, and my other anticlockwise!

Might be a good tactic to disturb your competition right before a race...

didnt try this special one arm variation myself so far. Regognized the missed pulls when you rotate too much or pull too much under the body in unco like drills.
Its important to always have palms and underside of forearm facing to the bottom of the pool as maximal and never roll over it loosing contact and support.
For me that means shoulders back and keep it wide. If you have a better kick or whatever you can control it better with a pull under the centerline perhaps.
