I’m a bit confused on hand position during the early catch (sculling phase).
Going from full arm extension forward to the position with arm at shoulder width I’ve seen 2 hand positions
1) with hand angling slightly down
2) with hand angling slightly to side
Can anyone shed light on how to best generate forward propulsion during this phase, the best hand position?
I’ve been working on the sculling drill and can generate forward propulsion with a high elbow, and hand down sculling. But going from straight extension to that point, I can’t seem to generate any forward propulsion.
