weight loss, triathlon, life- trying to graduate to superhero status- as soon as I figure it all out
my form looks like ian thorpe's....in my mind LOL! swimming is so frustrating, its just not natural, i hate it! im a little negative nelly about it too today if you couldnt tell haha! oh and thanks for blowing my theory of a wetsuit making me feel more secure in OW, i was really banking on it to make me feel invincible!!! just kidding :)
Keep in mind that most competitive swimmers have hyper-mobile joints that make these extreme positions possible. When coaching age-group athletes, make sure whoever is working with you works with what *you* can do, which is not always what a collegiate or Olympic swimmer is capable of.Biggest take-away from the Thorpe videos is not the high elbow in my book, but the long glide, which is very useful for distance (triathlon) swimmers. The high elbow may or may not be possible, based on your strength and flexibility. But the glide, everyone can do.
Great videos. Take your friend up on that offer though. It would be some awesome help. I would love to have some help with my stroke. My swim is terrible.
I find videos very helpful and like to watch them right before I head to the pool.
