Description


Learn the science needed to perfect your stroke, swim faster, and endure for longer.

Science of Swimming dives deeper than any other book to examine the muscle groups and bodily systems involved in being an effective swimmer; how they interact with the hydrodynamics of water resistance; and how you can apply this knowledge to streamline your technique and achieve your training goals.

  • Each swim stroke is anatomized so you can analyze and adapt your stroke to swim smarter.
  • Full-spectrum training programs—for all abilities and goals—combine drills, speed work, and endurance with dry-land conditioning routines targeting muscle strength, flexibility, and aerobic intensity.
  • All the latest scientific insights explained, including optimum nutrition, the importance of sleep hygiene, and techniques for mental resilience, to questions about wetsuits and open-water swimming.

Whether you're swimming simply for relaxation, competing for a club, training for a distance badge or triathlon, or planning to explore the oceans, Science of Swimming will support you both in and out of the water.
