When I purchased Swim Speed Secrets I was looking for something which would enable me to go from 2mm/100 down to 1:45mm/100. Sheila not only explains the basics of swimming, she also share her experience as a professional athletes during her shinning years at competition level.
For both new entrants as well as advanced this is the technical book you should read. Swimming is not about cardio, but efficiency. You have probably been taking lessons at your local pool, but what you were told was how to go forward in the water, this book will help you to correct and improve the mistakes you are doing.
There are a few dry and wet exercises to practice if you want to perform your skills, and it's in there.
I should now pace myself and see you much more efficient I am. I will definitely read this book again in a few years and see if i"m still doing great.

Great book 19 mai 2012
Par Bruce P. Douglass - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am a triathlete (or perhaps a wanna be) and swimming has not been my strength. While I get advice from coachs on movement that is visible outside of the water, I typically see MANY people doing exactly what those coaches are telling me my problem is, yet going MUCH faster than I. Clearly, something else is the problem, something going on under the surface, that's making the difference. This is where Sheila focuses - on the pull. She invokes the 80/20 rule and states that the other stuff - body streaminglining, arm recovery, hand entry - is all the in the 20%. And the best evidence she provides for that is Johnny Weissmuller held all swim records in the 1920s, while swimming holding his head out of the water! His speeds are certainly not up to today's olympic standards but he swims WAY faster than I or 99% of most triathletes (57s / 100m is Pretty Darn Fast). What he did have was a really good pull.

This is a well-thought out book with drills and training approaches. She does take her time making her point in places but this is the best book on the important parts of technique that I've seen. Highly recommended.

The cornerstone of my coaching and swim training... 21 mai 2012
Par DJ Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After reading the Book "Swim Speed Secrets", The way I thought about swimming changed immedietly, and each workout thereafter become more focused and refined. I had the wonderful opportunity to attend Sheila's swim clinic afterward also, and was the perfect application to put it together even more.
I coach a USA Triathlon Team, a US Masters team and High school Swim team, and compete myself. In the past 16 months after reading and learning the techniques and developing the flexibility and strengths that asist in better form, I went from swimming my usual 130/100 Yrd pace .to now consistintly swimming sub 109's...! and the HS swim team went from 1:6 (wins /losses) last year before I applied these, to A 6;1 this year!! with many PR's!
My triathletes are now known at races, as the ones to try to catch on the bike or run, because they are far out front from the swim!
~ :) many thanks Sheila!

Narrow focus, but I like it a lot 9 mai 2012
Par dnk512 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The author focuses mainly on the high elbow catch. What others spend a paragraph in a book or 60 seconds in a video, this author covers in great detail in an entire book. This reminds me of the total immersion (TI) books that use an entire book to focus on a narrow aspect of a stroke. Though it seems that one should be able to cover the high elbow catch with fewer pages, much like the TI books this book really drives the point home for the reader.

I like this book a lot. Perhaps I am reading it at the right time for my training. Though everyone will benefit from it, I would suspect some readers will benefit more depending on current swimming level. Total beginners may benefit more from the TI books. This book does not try to teach you how to start swimming. It assumes you can do some laps. However, this book will not hurt you if you are a beginner and very soon it will become indispensable for you, too.

The authors style of writing is very friendly. You will feel like you had a good coaching session after reading it. The pictures are very inviting. The pages are printed nicely. Very good job. On the presentation this book is the *best* swimming book out there.

Where I think the book could improve is where I enjoyed the book even more. As the title suggests, the book is about 'secretS' (many). And indeed, there are many secrets/topics in it, but they are all revealed in a less organized way during high elbow catch discussions. I greatly enjoyed the other tips. I just wish the 'secrets' were presented in a structured way. Perhaps the author feels that they are of lower importance. But... swimming is a sport of millimeters.

Kudos to the author for this book. I like it a lot

Improved my times overnight 9 novembre 2012
Par Necmiye Eren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
It sounds gimmicky, but it's true: this book shaved 30 seconds off of my 400 meter time in *one week*, without any additional outside coaching. I am a competitive runner making the transition to triathlon for the past 3 years, and have always struggled particularly with the swim leg of the sport. I have taken swim technique classes, done masters' swim classes, watched Total Immersion videos and read the TI book, but this book for the first time made something "click" with me about the way I have to think about swimming in order to actually move forward with speed.
The book basically is an enormous critique (although she doesn't name it explicitly) of Total Immersion's focus on gliding, reducing drag, reducing strokes, and becoming like a fish. Instead, Sheila focuses exclusively on the CATCH and PULL aspect of the stroke, using photographs and amazing visual images for when you're practicing. IT WORKED. The next day, I went to the pull, visualized a few of the images she has in the book, and voila! Instantly faster. Of course, it will take a lot more work for me to improve on what I gained through the book, but I am just MUCH more comfortabel in the water after reading this.
She gives some exercises and sets to practice which are good, but I look forward to her next book when she goes into more detail about that.

Pretty darn cool 24 juin 2013
Par laertes28 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have been stuck at 2:00/100m. (Don't laugh there are plenty of us out there.) It didn't matter what I did and to be honest I don't have the time to see a coach on a coaches' schedule. After reading all of the things I am messed up on, haha, I got it. The light bulb went off and I went back to real basics, floating, sculling then working stroke. I an now down to 1:45 and getting faster. I will never be the fastest, but I am no longer at the back of the pack. Movin' up!!
