it's hard to tell seeing as how no video has
been sent by you for view.
some fly-ers breathe face forward
some fly-ers breathe right side
some fly-ers breathe left side
some do all of the above.
the face forward is the easiest to learn.
in my estimation and teaching it.
cannot u locate a place where
you can observe fly-ers in action
and see how efficient they are as
they stroke-thump down the lane?
it's hard to tell due to we don't
know how strong your arms and legs
are and how they cooperate in the
motions...or if you have one strong
arm and one not so, etc.
we don't know ho wold you are and how
long you have been "contemplating doing
do you swim competitively? Do you have
an ideal "teacher" to guide you?

For race distances up to 50metres the energy system is pre***ly
anaerobic so you don't need too much oxygen. Breathe when you need to
remembering that keeping the head down permits a flatter body position
therefore less resistance.
For races of 100m the oxygen you take in during the first part of the race
is the oxygen your body will need for aerobic glycolosys later on, therefore
you should breathe regularly on the first 50m (every stroke). Then see what
you feel like - if you feel good towards the end of the race miss one or two
breaths or go to a pattern of breathing every two strokes for a while to
help the body position.
For longer distances breathe every stroke.
Whatever you do try to keep a rhythm going, once you decide on a pattern
don't keep changing it, that will hasten exhaustion. Work out the pattern
for early and late in the race and keep the pattern changes to a minimum.
