Andrew,
I read an article a few months back on the corkscrew with the arms in sprinting. Something about how the fascia corkscrews around the body (ie, right shoulder tight often equals a tight/stiff left hip, I think). They had a sprinter, who i can't remember, who had shown big improvements.

I haven't seen anything else about it though.

You hear about this before?
