    Helps the swimmers understand why you've chosen specific execises for drylands- make drylands correlate with what you want to achieve in the pool.  Focus on muscle grouping for that element of the stroke on which  you are concentrating.

    I gave one copy to my personal trainer in Thailand and he is helping me learn new exercises. I'm reading one copy. I sent a copy to each of my two adult children. Finally, a personal trainer at the La Jolla YMCA will receive another copy. I wish every swimmer had this book. I was so impressed I bought three other "Anatomy" books- cycling, dancing, and running-- for my adult children and grandchildren. I can't do all the exercises at present and I'll never be able to do a few. But my "dry land" routine is getting better and better. I can feel it in the pool.  I bought the book to save my shoulders, but it will do a lot more than that. I wish I had read this book decades ago.

    This is a great resource for coaches to plan dry land programs and perhaps better understand what's going on when their swimmer have various sports medicine complaints. Does not take the place of seeing an expert and getting formal care, but it helps. Even athletic trainers and physical therapist will find this book helpful.
