Wow, you looked really excited to be filmed there at the start of that clip! Nice job!
Yes, you're definitely a bit of a hybrid there - or what we'd typically show as probably the most common development pathway, that being from Arnie to Overglider. Ideally you'd go from Arnie to Smooth (or in some cases Swinger), but as we see from the video you have a very distinct catch-up style with a clear pause at the front of the stroke. Whilst this is undoubtedly better than what you used to be doing (so congrats on that), it's not quite as smooth and rhythmical as Jono here: http://www.swimtypes.com/smooth.html - notice how he has a long, smooth stroke, but never actually looks like he's going to catch-up. It's fluid and smooth and oozes great rhythm as you'd expect from someone who swam at the Athens Olympics!!
What you need now Shepster is a little more rhythm and not quite so much catch-up without going back to spinning your arms and fighting it like a true Arnie!!
Do you have one of the Guides to follow? I'd suggest the Overglider guide at this stage for yourself.
Keep up the good work!
P.S what profession / line of work are you in out of interest?
