9780071836708: The Fit Swimmer: 120 Workouts & Training Tips

This book puts an end to the drudgery of merely counting laps by showing you how to create your own individual fitness program--and have fun doing it! Learn how to:

  • Determine your own fitness level
  • Choose an appropriate training program and build upon that program with a variety of innovative workouts
  • Use a timing clock and interval training to increase your speed and endurance
  • Use various training equipment, such as kick boards, hand paddles, and swimming fins to strengthen stroke technique
  • Improve your cardiovascular fitness, muscle tone, and flexibility
Included for quick reference are tips for streamlining strokes, checklists for proper stroke execution, and a helpful glossary of training terms as well as a section on the joys and challenges of open water swimming. "I am constantly looking for new approaches which will do at least one of the following, and possibly all three:
  1. give me a change from normal routine
  2. make me a faster swimmer
  3. challenge me to work harder
The Fit Swimmer addresses all these in an informative and entertaining way, making this book a valuable resource for all swimmers." -- James E. Counsilman Swimming Coach Indiana University Marianne Brems is a Masters swimmer, coach of the San Mateo Master Marlins, author of Swim for Fitness and 101 Favorite Workouts, and a regular columnist for Swim Swim magazine.
