Good ideas and workouts but not the greatest on the science,
This review is from: Championship Swim Training (Paperback)
I brought this book over a year ago when i first started to get into coaching. I'm currently studying sports performance coaching at uni and a lot of the science written about is very vague. The energy systems are condenced to one paragraph each and that isn't enough.
Also the chapter on macro meso and micro cycles are poor. There is nothing written about regeneration other than the taper.
But if your looking for some brilliant drills and ideas for work outs then buy it for that.
so overall good if you know your science and are just looking for swimming ideas but if your new to the science of swimming read swimming fastest first then buy this.
