Keep the hips high by lowering the head and keeping the back of your head in line with the spine; strive to maintain a straight vertical line. During the stroke the body rolls from side to side to increase power and decrease resistance, eyes are looking down unless breathing while the body rotates from one side to the other. Try flutter kicking while rotated on your side, top arm resting across the chest, bottom arm extended, eyes looking down, take one stroke to roll to the opposite side and take a breath, then return to an eyes down vertical line side position.
