    I've never heard a recommendation to keep the arms tucked. I see a lot of people tuck their arms in (like boxers who aren't protecting the face) and swing their shoulders back and forth, which...

    I've never heard arm swing explained this way. Could you expand on that a bit?

    Watch the video. Really. There is a good middle ground, and this guy has the charts and numbers for it. Too much is almost as bad as none. (If the video is too long, start at about 12:30 or so.)
