    So helpful! I tend to add a small dolphin kicks before the flip, does this slow down the turn, Mr. Hall?

    I was wondering while using the ‘T’ at the bottom of the pool when do you flip? When your head just passes the ‘T’? Is it better to be closer to the wall or farther from it? I see some in almost a squat position and some barely touching with a toe.

    Thank you!

      When you begin to make the turn after the T on the bottom depends on your speed going into the wall. The only way to know is to practice it at race speeds. Once you have adjusted to this speed you can turn with confidence without looking up.
