    I sincerely wish that I thought I could get away with putting this as a quote in my signature block...

    To be candid, I didn’t find anything in those videos to be particularly innovative.

    The music might have had a negative impact on my perception.

    I figured out why I wasn’t very impressed with the rotational drill in this UTD video. I do it already in my twinset rig while on the surface waiting for others to get in the water. Roll down, study the topography of the descent point and check out the sealife, roll up, check on my mates, take another breath and roll back over to look underwater.

    I came across these UTD makeover videos years ago and thought that it was a systematic way of building up buoyancy control in students.

    I don't have formal instructional experience, but when I mentor my friends in the pool I find it extremely hard to change their buoyancy/trim bad habits, that sometimes I think about getting a hose splicer so I can reproduce the method used by UTD makeover.

    Here's a hint: belly-up you won't have to hold your breath.
