Smashing down into the catch can make your boat bouncy and it limits your stroke rate. ‘sneaking’ the blade in sideways keeps the boat running smoother and also allows for higher turnover. Try the side entry catch drill when you are sitting still. Keep your bottom hand in the same spot and move your top hand in and out. Think about angling the blade forward so the catch gives you more reach (angling it back gives you less).
