Video Transcript: "PHILLIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village. I'm Phillip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. One-arm drills: A butterfly one-arm drill that I really like doing, and it also helps out as far as your body positioning and balance is concerned, is the drill in which you use right arm, the left arm, both arms. And what I like doing is applying that drill to a 75-yard or even 150-yard distances just to really maximize it. So, I'm going right arm, 25, left arm, 25, both arms, 25, right arm, 25, left arm, 25, both arms, 25. What this does is it helps focus on my upper body strength, but more importantly, really gives me an idea as to how far I'm going with each stroke per arm. So, what I might find out is I might find out that my right arm is stronger than my left. So, maybe I want to work on my left, so as a combined stroke with both arms, I'm becoming more powerful and gain more distance per stroke."
