9781522844655: The Front Crawl - The Swimming Technique - How to Train Like a Professional (Volume 1)

Crawl is the fastest swimming style. At the same time, by the perfect technique, it is also the most economic style. It lets to cover the longest distance by the lowest application of force.

If you swim recreational, train as a professional or you are preparing for the triathlon, in this book you will find a lot of excersises, that will let you work conciously on your technique and have more pleasure in swimming.

Surely you have wondered, how does it work, that one person, using more force, moves slowly, while the other person, swimming relaxed, covers the distance very quickly. This is what the technique means by swimming. Small details in position and work of our body decide about the size of water resistance we have to deal with while swimming and how fast we move in water.

Not every practise makes perfect,
but the masterful practise leads to a success.
If you constantly repeat and strenghten
your mistakes in swimming,
how can you expect better results?
Start training consiously
and enjoy your success!
The drills presented in this book are described in such a way that everybody can understand them, do them on their own and achieve better performance.

In order to facilitate learning, drills are divided into chapters in which they are grouped into ones developing similar skills or body parts. However, this division is not very strict, because numerous drills develop many things simultaneously - in such a case these drills are not repeated in subsequent chapters. That is why I encourage you to familiarize with all drills before you choose those you will find most useful:

  • Body Position In The Water.
  • Feeling The Water (Propellers).
  • Work Of Legs.
  • Work Of Arms Above The Water.
  • Work Of Your Arms Under The Water.
  • Breathing.
  • Speed
  • Helpful Turns And Starts
  • Open Waters (Triathlon, Swimming Marathons)
  • Endurance
As an interlude between chapters you will find quotations about swimming.

In the past it was generally believed that one has to be born with a good technique, but, as we know from the experience of many coaches, the technique is being developed during training. Nowadays, it is a good technique that gives advantage to the best contestants during competitions, when leaders have strength and endurance at the very similar level. It often happens that the difference between contestants during competitions amounts to 2 hundredths of a second. In such a case technical nuances are decisive, for instance the fact that during the finish a contestant is pushing his shoulder excessively forward, hits the wall with stretched fingers and gains a few centimeters in this way.

Nowadays the experience of the best coaches is available not only to the selected professionals - this knowledge may be also used by you. You can also get familiar with these drills. If you improve your technique, you will swim faster using the same or even less effort.

Unlock your potential today by thinking about buying this incredible book.
