Overview

"Swimming - A Training Program" sets out the 300 swimming schedules and 115 weight schedules making up a single six-month training cycle. While David Wright's and Garth Gilmour's "Swim to the Top" provided the training theory, this book sets the theory into practice. Each week's program, which in most cases involves thirteen swim practices and five weight sessions, also includes a description of how the week's program is compatible with and contributes to Lydiard's training objectives. Chapters include the Aerobic Build-up period, the Transition period, then the Anaerobic Conditioning period and finally, the most important of all, the Trials and Coordination race preparation period. "Swimming - Training Program" is for the competitive swimmer, but also less experienced swimmers not yet able to handle the full Lydiard program will find tips on how to modify the programs to bring them down to a volume that they can manage. This appeals to young athletes just setting out on their senior competitive careers, recreational swimmers who swim as part of their fitness program, triathletes, or surf swimmers using pool work to prepare for their specialist sport.

Anikaa stepped out onto the ice. She was wearing a sky blue suit with navy strips running diagonsllly wity blue sequins. Her hair wss braided as usual. She took up her position. She knelt on one knee and twisted her body towards the roof. Her hips were perpendicular to the ice. She started to skate: her moves a flowing combination.
