Swimming makes sense now!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Swim Smooth: The Complete Coaching System for Swimmers and Triathletes (Paperback)
An excellent book - vey easy to read, great explanations, diagrams and pictures.
I've recently taken up swimming (in my 40s) in preparation for an Ironman event. Being fit and being swim fit are two totally different things and whilst I'd been able to run marathons in the past, swimming 2 lengths of the 25m pool had me gasping for breath!
This book helped to refine my swimming technique so that I no longer battle against the water, rather swim with the flow. The book categorises different types of swimmers and provides clear guidance, tips and drills to help improve your style so that you can maximise your performance in the pool. I now actively look forward to my swims. Great book - thoroughly recommended.
