Books About Swimming - Bibliography

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Swimming well takes dedication, skill, and knowledge. These books will assist patrons in gathering the information they need to become better swimmers.

The Breakthrough Swimming, by Cecil Colwin
Legendary swimming coach and historian Cecil Colwin describes how competitive swimmers of the modern era—such as swimming giants Ian Thorpe and Grant Hackett—apply innovative training methods and stroke techniques to set new standards of performance. All four strokes as well as starts and turns are presented in thorough detail in Colwin’s easy-to-grasp instructional style. Not only will you gain a greater understanding of competitive swimming through its origins and evolution.

Championship Swim Training
The book starts with benchmark test sets to evaluate ability, find specific training zones, and plot future training targets. Drill progressions and checklists for every stroke can be applied to individual swimmers or entire squads for technique enhancement.
The next section explains proper program planning for juniors through master swimmers and provides sample training sets for all levels of swimmers. The final chapters provide tapering tips, racing strategies, and dry land conditioning recommendations to take the guesswork out of constructing the perfect year-round program.

The Fit Swimmer : 120 Workouts & Training Tips, by Marianne Brems

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!

The Swimming Drill Book, by Ruben J. Guzman
Establish a greater sense of balance and position in the water; maintain perfect form for the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly; and master the techniques for starts, turns, and finishes. Use the drills individually or create a personalized program based on your goals and fitness level. Either way, the tools you need are within your grasp.
