Sheila Taormina: Swim Speed Secrets: For Swimmers and Triathletes

Swim Speed Secrets: For Swimmers and Triathletes


In "Swim Speed Secrets", 4-time Olympian, gold medallist, and triathlon world champion Sheila Taormina reveals the swim technique used by the world's fastest swimmers. Over the course of 4 Olympic Games and throughout her career as a world champion triathlete, Taormina refined her exceptional technique as a student of the sport, studying the world's best swimmers using underwater photographs and video analysis. From Johnny Weissmuller to Michael Phelps, the world's fastest swimmers share one common element: a high-elbow underwater pull. Many swimmers and triathletes neglect the pull, distracted by stroke count or perfecting less critical details like body position, streamlining, and roll. "Swim Speed Secrets" focuses on the pull - the most crucial element of swimming - to help triathletes and swimmers overhaul their swim stroke and find the speed that's been eluding them. With a commonsense approach that comes from decades of practice and 15 years of hands-on coaching experience, Taormina explains why the high-elbow underwater pull is the most important part of swimming and how swimmers can transition to this vital technique. She offers the best drills to cultivate a sensitive feel for the water. Her dryland and strength building exercises develop the arm positioning and upper body musculature required to swim faster. She describes what it feels like when swimmers have learned the secret and offers tips that helped her perform at a world-class level for two decades. Sheila Taormina's "Swim Speed Secrets" brings the focus back where it belongs - to a powerful underwater stroke. With this book, triathletes and swimmers can stop swimming for survival and break through to new levels of speed and confidence in the water. Sheila Taormina is one of a handful of athletes who have competed in four Olympic games and the only woman in the world to have competed in three distinctly different sports - swimming, triathlon, and modern pentathlon. At just 5' 2" tall, Taormina's exceptional freestyle swim technique helped her win a gold medal in the 1996 Olympics and the 2004 ITU triathlon world championship. For 15 years, Taormina has coached elite and age-group swimmers and triathletes to develop the strong underwater pull that propelled her to such athletic success in her racing career. Taormina conducts dozens of swim clinics around the world each year.

With few options of her own, nurse Abigail Stuart agrees to marry her patient, a gravely Swim Speed Secrets: For Swimmers and Triathletes download epub wounded soldier calling himself Jeremiah Calhoun.
