Hyper Streamline: Reducing Frontal Drag
Level 1-here is the article I mentioned during practice for those who are interested:
In order to test which streamline was the best, a device was used to measure the amount of frontal drag force on a swimmer while holding various types of streamlines. The hyper streamline position was found to be the most effective at reducing frontal drag. Right now there is no hard evidence (scientifically proven) that contradicts this concept, so until there is, I would say it is safe to say that hyper streamline is the most effective streamline body position.
Remember, don’t always do something just because someone tells you to! Question what you know and why it makes sense. Do some research and then make an informed decision.
