Details: Masterful practice leads to success. If you constantly repeat and strengthen your mistakes in swimming, how can you expect better results?
The Front Crawl (Freestyle) 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.
For many people swimming in the pool was a struggle for survival, but often after doing some exercises and getting to know a bit of knowledge has become a pleasure. Understanding the principles on which movement in water is based and then practising them is the fastest way to improve swimming technique.
In this book you will find numerous drills which will help you learn more about the front crawl and improve the technique:
feeling the water,
a high elbow,
swimming without any effort,
open water swimming,
controlling your speed,
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 centimetres in this way.
Nowadays the experience of the best swimming 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.
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 Arms Under The Water.
Helpful Turns And Starts
Open Waters (Triathlon, Swimming Marathons)
As an interlude between chapters you will find quotations about swimming.
Better performance in swimming can be achieved by adaptation to the water environment. To achieve that, we strive to develop our strength, endurance and technique. Water is not a natural environment for a human being, but we are capable of adapting to it.
