It was developed from the author's competitive experience in addition to working with college coaches and world class Masters swimmers at clinics and swim camps.
While Robert was Aquatics Director at the Charles River YMCA and a nationally ranked Masters swimmer, he wrote booklets for his team, Triathlon classes and Masters Clinics. These were well received for the simplicity of explanations and extensive use of photographs and diagrams. Some were posted on Masters web sites.
The book updates and incorporates these works while expanding explanations and adding new material. It starts with the basic science of moving through water and the mechanics of how muscles work. This information is used to explain why the best swimming techniques are effective using analogies to levers, springs, hinges and other sports activities. The writing with visual material is easily understood by all ages of swimmers. It explains a few techniques and training practices appropriate for advanced programs without the complexity found in many books. This is a short and comprehensive book. Anyone interested in competitive swimming will find it useful.
