Default Front Crawl Technique Question - OK to "shrug" shoulder to reach further

On Wed, 09 Jul 2003 11:58:57 -0400, Steve Freides

I notice that, when I'm really reaching far in
front of during front crawl, I can get a little
further reach if I "shrug" my shoulder but I'm
concerned this might be bad for my shoulder.

I have a swim mag around here somewhere that
recommends shrugging the shoulder. I think they
called it the 'shoulder shift'. You should be
able to shrug without the ball leaving the socket,

I'm trying to decide if I've gotten my stiff neck
from a low monitor, from not rolling enough in
Backstroke or from moving my own furniture.
