Exaggerated Follow Through

Exaggerated Follow-Through.  If you are an experienced swimmer or tried yesterday’s suggestion about brushing your ear as you pull your arm back in your follow-through you know I was exaggerating when I told you to tap your ear with your finger.  Tried it this AM myself - doesn’t work.   Here’s what does … As you pull up, you really do want to try to keep your arm and hand as close to your body as possible.  Instead of your ear, try tapping just under your arm pit as you pull your arm up from your hip. After you reach your arm pit, shoot your hand forward.  End with your fingers pointing forward and your arm parallel to the side of your head - touching your head if possible.  Remember the main goal - you want to force yourself to maintain a consistent torpedo shape for slip-streaming purposes.
