Hi Danny - a great variation on that core exercise is one I’ve been working on lately. Kneel on the floor with a pad under your knees and place your forearms on a stability ball. Engage your core and roll the ball away, remaining in a straight column from your knees to your shoulders (or ears!). I hold about 30-60 sec, roll back up and repeat 5 or so times. It does work the triceps a little which carries over to my swimming, but the core really gets it!
Minor correction to previous comment - should start with sides of fists on ball, then as you roll out, forearms come onto ball.

The study of the Chinese elements is a great way to get a different kind of feel for the Chi techniques.

Every race that I have set a personal record has been while I was using a metronome. A metronome is objective. It doesn't lie and doesn't get tired.
