(very very clearly, hips move first, followed by the rest)
This, by the way, would be an equivalent to one of the TI switch drills. Very simple. It promotes rotating from the hips.
I haven't had the huge chance of working with Ryan unfortunately. So I prefer not to comment on his stroke. He's still the silver medalist, in less than a second per 100m behind Sun. He lost this battle, but certainly not the war (not just yet).
Thank you so much, you touched the heart of this drill. I can't think of any other drills that best promotes body rotation, along with all the good it can bring.chdoyle wrote:The last 2 are amazing! Ever since I read about TI/Terry suggesting you get more power from your core than your arms I had yet to see an example od this theory. When I started watching the first clip it was surrealistic because I stopped and said, 'wait, how is this guy moving himself forward, he's not kicking!' Then I saw his arms doing a slight movement but he was getting more speed than from just his arms, his rotation was helping his forward movement. It's even more apparent in the last clip. I have to try this drill next time at the pool. I already do a version of it but with the flutter kick.

With snorkel and a single arm stroke every 3 (to show the versatility of the drill)
