Your head position looks good but your chest-hip connection needs
to be stronger so that you rotate your chest and hips as a unit.
The actual breathing looks pretty good, but while you breathe your
spine gets out of alignment, your hips drop and your legs splay apart
- all of this slows you down.
Your core is not rotating as a unit. You are getting about enough
rotation with your hips to each side, but your shoulders are not rotating
with your hips - rather they seem to be twisting after your hips,
which may be the result of entering and extending your hands too near
to the surface.
Good extension but the hands are too close to the surface. This angles
your body uphill and means you will have to press down on the water
for a longer time to get a catch. Try to extend your arms at shoulder
Your hand very close to the surface a full extension, so you have
to press down on the water for a long time to get your catch. This
is a breaking action. In addition you are pulling back on your elbow
before you have your catch, and that shortens your pull.
Your elbow is deep and your hand-forearm paddle is under your body
- it will slip sideways and vertically as you complete your stroke.
Your recovery looks pretty good except that your right hand seems
to cut in front of your head instead of driving straight ahead.
evaluated. If you will be doing longer than sprint distance triathlons
you should develop a 2-beat kick.
Kick is compact but the knees are bending on recovery. Rather than
recover your foot towards the surface with your hamstrings, use your
glutes. That will keep your leg straight and allow you to kick with
a long lever (hips-to-toes) instead of a short one (shins- to-toes).
Arms - Extension. When your arm reaches full extension,
it should be at shoulder depth instead of at the surface. At full
extension you should be rotated onto your side (at least 45°),
and a line from fingertips to toes should be parallel to the surface.
Arms - Catch & Pull. Separate the catch
from the pull. Try to keep driving your elbow forward as you get your
hand and forearm vertical in the water, beside your body. Then pull
Posture. Every time you leave the wall, think "neck
tall, chin back, belly in" to lock your head, chest and hips
