Ernie Maglischo and Cathy Ferguson Brennan have written the first comprehensive swimming guide combining conditioning and biomechanics! "Swim for the Health of It" provides stroke-by-stroke guidance for people who want to use swimming to improve their health and physical fitness. You will learn how to train effectively, how to measure your progress, how to stay motivated, and how to avoid injuries common to swimmers. Sequence photographs and drawings illustrate various strokes so thoroughly that you can virtually teach yourself about stroke mechanics. No more sitting by the pool listening to the coach explain the hows and whys of swimming! "Swim for the Healthy of It" is a must for coaches and swimmers who care about performance and want to spend more time training.
