For reasons too complicated to expound upon I cannot use my left arm to swim freestyle. I am doing OK just using my right arm but if anyone has a suggestion as to swimming smoothly with one arm would apprciate your remarks. Gil

Can you keep your LH arm streamlined in front of you? I am smoothest that way, but swimming with an arm along your side works as well....just not as smooth for me. Given your situation, I would concentrate as much or more on kicking. Assuming you are recovering from an injury, take this opportunity to build some serious endurance in your legs.
