Spring Training - Stroke Technique Resources

Even those of us who choose not to compete benefit by organizing their annual swimming regimen into seasons. As we approach the spring season it can be helpful to review our technique and look for areas of improvement. Obviously asking your coach for suggestions is the best place to start. The USMS website is also a great resource for stroke tips. From the Training tab, available from almost every page on the site, one can access resources dedicated to workouts, drills, starts and turns, stroke technique and other training related topics. In the last year there have been articles on stroke tempo, recovery techniques, improving the catch portion of the stroke, and proper hip placement. While the articles give ideas on how the competitive swimmer can improve his or her speed, the same techniques can help the fitness swimmer avoid injury. Check it out and make technique improvement part of your annual spring training ritual.
