The principles are well-grounded in easy-to-understand concepts that clearly explain proven methods used by some of the fastest swimmers in the world.

Learn how to relax and breathe in the water, and use basic physics and some cutting edge techniques to effectively create your own personal stroke. The psychological factors in reference to swimming and competing and the importance of making swimming fun and enjoyable are discussed, as well as: implementing cutting-edge swimming techniques, open water training techniques for speed and safety, fitness and competition training programs, strength and flexibility training programs, and effective equipment use.

    I have only started to use the guide, but it was full of very useful picture and instruction.  The organization of the entire book is well panned.

    2 Review Stars By RestonHank

    The book is wordy and needed a good editor. There is way too much background and much too little actual instruction.
    The advice seems worthwhile, but you have to hunt for it and the explanations are a bit obtuse.
