At the least, they shouldn't use one leg for recovery every time. I did that when I first started out, and since I solely recovered using my right leg, my left leg was significantly weaker. When I started to get into more intermediate recovery techniques, this was a big detriment. My slides were suffering as well.

Give both legs a workout, then later on it won't bite you in the butt.
