question on front crawl by Pat
As I was swimming laps the other day, I saw a guy in the lane beside me bringing his arm out of the water right about the point where his hand was beside his chest. I thought there was an additional part to this stroke---the follow through back towards the hip before the hand came out. His stroke...

Stroke Rate, Michael! by 4precious

Slush by Micheal Artindale
The recent weather is worrying me. It has been warm, and on Friday, they expect about 20mm of rain. If that happens, there will be too much slush to go on the lake with a snowmachine. If there is not too much slush for me to go out on skis, I will. I may have to wait untill after the ice is off...

Fins and weight belt -- good cardiovascular exercise? by [email protected]
I go to a local pool regularly; I am not concerned with speed, just with endurance and cardiovascular fitness. Few weeks ago I was testing my new fins (I am a scuba diver) and to get some decent exercise out of the visit decided to make it a little more challenging. I put on my weight belt with 9...

Masters of the Universe by Duncan Heenan
Although I have been a member of a Masters club for some time, I don't like the term. I think it is inaccurate. The term 'Master' conjures up the vision of some giant of the discipline whose towering achievements allow him or her to excel in action and whose words of wisdom fall effortlessly...

Hello, I am reporting on my progress with freestyle again. I have received some very good advice here in the past.
