Drill: bent-elbow sculling

The bent-elbow sculling drill simulates a high-elbow catch.

How to perform the drill:
Lay horizontally in the water, kicking gently to keep your legs afloat. Keeping your elbows high and stable, gently turn your hand inwards at a 45degree angle for the insweep and back out again for the outsweep. Your hands should move in a "figure 8" shape. Really focus on the feeling pressure of water against your hands in all parts of the "figure 8" - this also simulates the pressure you should feel on a proper catch.
