Thumbs Up

This flaw is rarer than the thumbs down cousin, but is extremely inefficient. It prevents setting up the ideal catch and increases the amount of water pushed toward midline. It is mandatory to orient the hand towards the floor of the pool during the entry and glide, then transition from horizontal to vertical in the initial catch to create lift. Instruct a firm hand throughout the pulling phase, no sloppy hands allowed!
