[private] I’ve been teaching a lot of body rotation.We are designed to have limits to shoulder range of motion. The shoulder is a limited ball joint. However, it means most people don’t have the ability to take a stroke and then lift their arm up, out of the water, and around in front of the head. Our arms usually go to a 180 degree angle, but it’s a physical rarity to move arms to a 270 degree angle. When swimming freestyle and backstroke, the axis of rotation should be aligned with but not the same as the spine. When preventing or caring for back troubles, people are taught to move with hips and shoulders aligned.
