Video recording of the swim session

Two days ago I recorded my swim workout from several different angles and would love to get ya all critique - feel free to comment directly on YouTube. Looking forward to recommendations!


Would love to hear any recommendations on how to improve my swimming technique and speed. Here is the breakdown of the workout:
----------- View from above the pool (front)
00:00 - 150 yards - warmup breast stroke
00:12 - 150 yards - kick on a side w/ flippers
00:37 - 50 yards - kick on a side without flippers (note how slow I go - very weak kick)
01:00 - 450 yards - alternate 25 yards skulling with 25 yards free style stroke
02:40 - 150 yards - free style stroke with paddles
03:10 - 100 yards - free style stroke
03:22 - 400 yards - alternate 50 yards one arm drill with 50 yards free style stroke
----------- view from the edge of the pool
05:26 - 100 yards free style stroke
----------- view from the bottom of the pool
05:56 - 400 yards - alternate 25 yards fist drill with 25 yards free style stroke
----------- view from the side of the pool (above water)
