Technique is critical in swimming performance. In the pool or open water, coaches and athletes alike know that efficiency in entering the water and in moving through it equates to milliseconds of improvement—milliseconds that make all the difference in a competition.

That’s where The Swimming Drill Book continues to deliver. The first edition quickly became the best-selling drill book in the sport. Now, this second edition ups the ante with more drills, new variations, and expanded coverage to help every swimmer.

Inside, you’ll find more than 175 drills for refining strokes, correcting faults, and improving your feel for the water. In addition to mastering all four competitive strokes—freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly—you’ll learn the essentials of body position, sculling, starts, turns, and finishes. You’ll even find all-new coverage of open-water drills and strength band workouts to be performed poolside.

September Book of the Month

Since periodization training’s emergence in the 1950s, sport scientists have known that timing is one of the most critical programming variables influencing peak athletic performance. Modern research has taken the application of timing to exercise programming in a new direction, discovering the existence of time clocks inside each of the more than 600 skeletal muscles. Timing Resistance Training examines how these internal clocks use cues provided through exercise programming to regulate physiological processes for better performance.

Not just another periodization book, Timing Resistance Training teaches you how to manipulate muscle clocks to train and perform at your best every day—right down to the specific time of day that is best for your body. You will learn to view the muscles as proactive independent physiological systems that can be trained to “think” by delivering timing cues to muscles that tell them when to activate key physiological actions that influence the entire body.
