In this video, we are looking at the hand entry, the alignment, and the tautness through the body. You can see that when he enters with his right hand, you can see that the thumb is turned in quite an angle and it is quite close to the head. When we are swimming, we want to rotate our shoulder internally, at least when we are reaching and extending but when we turn the hand too much, it can cause you to come across the head and for the fingertips to come out. We want to be able to get the fingertips down, so fingertips below the wrist, wrist below the elbow. The reason for that is that’s where you’re going to have the least amount of drag with the fingertips in that position.
