If you're like many swimmers, you REALLY enjoy breathing to one side. Even though you're perfectly adept at breathing to both, when you get tired, you have a tendency of "leaning" to your favorite side for air.
Trouble is, if you're leaning too much to one side, you're probably not getting the proper pull with the other hand. This quick sequence of drills, or this progression, is a quick way to PROVE to yourself that you CAN rotate equally to both sides. It should also help you do that more frequently.
OK. I'm no expert on technique but the girl in this video is NOT swimming with her arms tight along her body or with high elbows. I understand it on the Tarzan drill but not the other. The underwater shot shows that she's not swimming with high elbows below the surface either.
Isn't this bad technique?
