    I don't see any hand separation. Why no DQ?

    In honesty, this is pretty amazing to watch. He doesn't appear to do anything special but just gets incredible distance per stroke why maintaining incredible speed. I watch this and don't really come away inspired to try anything different. Maybe "get back to the basics" is the message.

    His feet initiate just below the surface and almost look like they flex 90 out.

    That part is good.I am surprised he flexes so much at the hip.That does increase power,but it also increases drag.He does seem to recover from the knees only at first.It certainly seems to work for him.

    Hey all you froggers: I want to thank you for your feedback and input on my videos posted a few weeks ago. I've been focusing on DPS, keeping my head down and body streamlined (like Ed Moses). I swam my 15 year best time in 100 BR this weekend, taking off 4.5 secs from this season's best. Could not have done it without your advice, along with HIT training and support from Leslie Livingston. Breaststroke rocks!

    ...and totally pulverized the zone record. Good going Melinda! (Not being a frog I will now retreat from where I do not belong, just wanted to note the accomplishment.)

    I know there are a lot of videos that have been posted and a lot of talk about dps but I was wondering if someone had a video of doing a dps test swim.
    Thanks

Despite that, i swim 34,67 50LCM (i guess that this isn't such a bad time).

    And by the way, i can get myself on the video and post it here if that is necessary.

    I would appreciate your help .
    I promised that i will upload a video, but i had some problems and i'm late because of that, but anyway, here it is I will upload one more video from the front...



    Whole conversation is on 46th page... I hope you guys will help me out with the technique...

    Re: The Breaststroke Lane

    You are pulling your arms way to far back,which is causing you to have a hesitation in your stoke as you recover them.I think this also adds to your getting so high out of the water.Try to bring your elbows no further back than your shoulders.A good drill for this is to get in shallow water and lean over the lane line so the line is under your armpits.Do your pull over the rope so you can't pull too far back.
    On the kick,you are recovering with you knees too wide which increases drag.Keep your knees no wider than you shoulders(and no more than 2 fists apart is better) at all times.

    Re: The Breaststroke Lane

    If you got your most recent Swimmer, they have some great advice on the BR arms outsweep/insweep with pretty good pictures. Might be a little late to adjust for this weekend, but worth a look going forward! Best of luck!
