It is little wonder, therefore, that many people would like to swim, and swim better, with an improved technique and a stronger stroke.  This book will help you do just that, whether you are a beginner or more experienced.

The Contents of This Book

This guide will help you to maximize the great benefits of having swimming as a regular routine in your life.  By following the advice in this book you will have the information necessary to become a much more confident and quicker swimmer.

All swimming coaches agree that the secret of swimming fast is to get the basics right.  This is essential for beginners and even more important for experienced swimmers who may have picked up bad habits which are preventing them from improving.  Chapter 1 examines these fundamentals of swimming and shows how they form the bedrock of all the swimming stokes.  All swimming strokes have certain essentials in common and knowing these will make a huge difference in how effectively you learn the strokes

There are four styles of swimming permitted by FINA for competitions.  FINA is the worldwide governing swimming organization that oversees rules and regulations for competitions.

Chapters 2 to 5 discuss four of the major strokes- backstroke, front crawl, breaststroke and butterfly.  Each has its merits and disadvantages.  We’ll walk through the arms, legs, breathing and turns for each swimming style as well as  scientific advances that have been made over the last fifty years.  Hopefully the strategic breakdown will help you to determine which stroke you are the best at.  Remember that practice makes perfect for each of these.  Variants of arm and leg movements have also been provided so that you can learn at your own pace.  For competitive swimming, the start of the race is absolutely vital, so  in Chapter 6 we will examine the skill of diving.

Healthy eating is important in any sport, and indeed for a balanced life, but swimming has more of a specific set of nutritional guidelines than you’d imagine.  In chapter 7 we will discuss delicious foods that you’d want to snack on anyway that have great nutritional merits for swimmers.  Chapters 8 and 9 will talk about physical and mental health for swimmers.  There will be days when your practice is fueled by your inherent desire to learn and compete.  Embrace these days.  There will be days when training is the last thing that you want to do, so we’ll discuss strategies that will motivate you to master your new passion. 

Strength training for swimming is also vitally important if you want to make progress.  Remember that swimming is a challenging sport, so you need to treat your body with the utmost respect as you train, stretching regularly and eating the right nutrients so that you’re fueled properly. 

Armed with the abundance of knowledge and strategies in this book, you’ll be prepared to conquer the swimming pool.  It’s now time to discover what you can do to greatly increase your performance and swimming abilities!

Chapter 1: The Fundamentals of Swimming

Before we examine the specifics of the four main swimming strokes, it is important to acknowledge that there are some fundamentals that are common across all swimming strokes.

As noted in the introduction, there is something natural about being in the water.  It can feel like the most comfortable place in the world.  The water can be an environment in which you feel more at home than in any other. There also seems to be something natural and intuitive about swimming.  But the fact is, this feeling only comes once we have the confidence to move in the water without our feet planted on the ground.  For someone who cannot swim or who has never tried before, it can be very uncomfortable being in the water.  This is especially true for the adult who cannot swim.  For them, being in the water can feel alien, disquieting and even terrifying. 

To overcome these feelings, we need to consider for a moment the difference between the experienced swimmer and the beginner.

The fundamental idea behind swimming is that humans will float in water.  This is obvious for the swimmer, but difficult to grasp for anyone who cannot swim.  We can modify this idea by saying that how we move and position our body completely changes our ability to float.  There are certain movements that enable us to float more efficiently and other movements that inhibit our ability to float.

We must acknowledge that there is nothing obvious or intuitive about which movements are helpful and which have the opposite effect.  In fact, the non-swimmer, placed in a pool and asked to try to float is likely to panic and make the kind of rapid, uncoordinated movements that are exactly those that hinder our ability to float.

Gain Confidence In Your New Environment

Before any progress can be made in learning to swim, it is essential that beginners are given a chance to become more relaxed in the water.  Gaining confidence is essential, as all swimming strokes require the swimmer to move confidently and without tension.  Furthermore, progress can only be made if people feel happy and comfortable with what they are doing.  Learning to swim, especially for an adult, can be an intimidating experience and a great deal of patience is needed.

A useful exercise to help beginners feel at ease is to practice breathing out under the water.  This can be as fun and as simple as blowing bubbles into the water.  But it has a practical application, as nearly all swimming strokes require the head to be submerged for exhaling.
