Human Kinetics Championship Swim TrainingWhether you're a coach looking to develop your program or a swimmer seeking to improve your technique, you'll benefit from swim coaching legend Bill Sweetenham's proven methods for improving performance in the backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke, freestyle, and individual medley. Sweetenham has coached 63 top swimmers in international competitions to 27 Olympic and World Championship medals.
Beginning with Sweetenham's five golden rules for swimming, Championship Swim Training is divided into two parts. Part I, Technique Drills and Sets, is designed to help pinpoint stroke deficiencies and improve stroke technique as well as sculling, starts, turns, finishes, and kick and pull training. Part II, Workouts and Programs, details the best way to plan the long-term development of juniors through masters swimmers, covers the critical tapering phase to get swimmers ready for competition, and provides detailed racing strategies.
