Mechanics 

Fine tuning your swim is key to faster swimming. The chapter covering mechanics will address all swims and strokes by addressing the following key points:

• Back of the hand mechanics with “arm and hand” as one-paddle.
• Catch and finish of each stroke.
• Body position and reducing drag.
• Momentum
• Timing and rhythm during the breathing and stroke.

Faster Swimming covers philosophy, scope, mechanics, stroke analysis, race strategies, practice techniques (that are used throughout a 23 week seasonal program), nutrition, weight lifting, dryland and how all this makes you a faster swimmer.

Comments From Readers

"I have purchased the e-book and the weekly workouts and am very pleased. As I live too far from where my club is, I train alone. The true blessing of these purchases are that I can just sit back and follow the guideline / workouts that are given and not have to sit for hours putting together a swim workout or try to determine which weight / dryland program I should be following.
IT'S ALL THERE."

• Dawn Thompson (Masters Swimmer)

"The taper program has been an effective program for our team because it allows us to maintain our endurance levels through out the taper over a 4 week period for the high school season. With having done the right amount of training during the season, the swimmers have the confidence that they are more prepared for the championship races, because they are able to finish the races stronger than their opponents. We are able to concentrate on speed drills while we are tapering and not feel more tired during the taper."

"The mechanics and swim/taper plan you'll find in this book REALLY WORK. Having been a competitive swimmer, as well as an age-group coach, I can say from my experience, if you follow this program, you will see results."

"The workouts matched with the dryland program will create strength and speed – as well as keep the sport fun and challenging. It is easy to see the “method to the madness” with this plan – and I have seen kids stay motivated with this plan – because they know, if they do the work – day in and day out, that they are going to see results at the end."
