Présentation de l'éditeur

It s no secret: Most triathletes are weak swimmers. Too many triathletes neglect their swimming form and rely on unfocused workouts. The result is lost time on race day. Swim Workouts for Triathletes features 80 swim workouts with the structure, variety, and drills triathletes need to become more efficient swimmers. Each workout is designed around a specific goal endurance, speed, form, force, muscular endurance, or anaerobic endurance making it easy to prepare for any race and improve all-around swimming skill. Triathletes can pick and choose workouts, slotting them into their current training, or begin one of the four new swim training plans from these accomplished swim coaches. The second edition of Swim Workouts for Triathletes includes: Waterproof, spiral-bound pages with big fonts for easy reading through goggles; the 10 best drills for improved freestyle performance; 30-minute sessions to fit a quality workout into a busy day; ppen-water workouts to get ready for race day; beginner & advanced swim sets for each workout; 4 training plans for sprint, Olympic & half-Ironman®, Ironman®, and general fitness.

Where is the swimming techniques ??? Only 4 simple training plans ???? Workouts divided into : the beginners and the advanced. And the "in-between" ????

HASH(0x9f36aed0) étoiles sur 5 Not for beginners :( 16 mars 2012
Par A. Finan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
This book is definitely written for someone who has been swimming for a long time and knows all the abbreviations and swim jargon. I have been swimming for 3 years. I am not really a beginner but definitely not advanced. I am currently training for my first half ironman. That said, I found these workouts to be waaay too long. The workout I tried yesterday was 4400m. Maybe a very skilled swimmer can do that in the suggested 45 minutes, but 4400m is at least 90 minutes for me, which I just don't have for a single swim.
This book doesn't dry, but I just keep it in my gym bag so that doesn't matter.
There is a glossary included to help decode all of the abbreviations, but figuring out what the workout actually entails is like putting together a puzzle. Again, I think it is meant for the advanced swimmer.

HASH(0x9f344708) étoiles sur 5 My new swim buddy... 28 décembre 2011
Par Steven Morley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales Achat vérifié
The good points of this book for me are that:
- It's waterproof
- I can show up at the pool without a plan and have a productive workout.
- It comes with training plans that cover everything from general fitness through to Ironman.
- The text is big enough to read through goggles, without my contacts (your mileage may vary here)
- It has illustrated drills (and be honest, who doesn't need to do more drills?)

So why just four stars? I mean, I use this thing at all of my swim sessions now.
As has been pointed out by other reviewers, the workouts are extremely front crawl (freestyle) heavy. It's not a big problem, since the book is targeted at triathletes and swimming any other stroke in a tri doesn't make much sense. However, the IM sets and backstroke that featured in my old masters squad workouts really helped my swimming, and I think provided a balance for the muscles used in the sets.
If you don't splash much when you turn, the drying of the book when you get home is easy... wipe down the page you're open to and forget about it. If you splash (or the guy in the next lane does) then it can take a few minutes to go through and wipe down all the damp pages - this is a necessary step. It's waterproof, not 'stay-dry'.
The book is also seemingly written for a short-course pool (25m/yds). That's what I have access to mostly now, but I still prefer long-course (50m) and some of the workouts would be harder to adapt to long course.
The abbreviations used in all the workouts can take some time to get used to, but that's not difficult unless your memory is worse than mine. The final issue is that many of the workouts rely on you knowing your T-pace (test pace following one of the tests in the book), and assume that you can effectively gauge your own pace as you swim. This is easy(ish) for experienced swimmers, but will be difficult for novices.

All in all, I recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone who wants an easy way of getting more structure into their swim workouts. It's not perfect, but that's a lot to ask for...

HASH(0x9f335a2c) étoiles sur 5 Outstanding product however not for the new 22 mai 2013
Par TriBryant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales Achat vérifié
Don't write too many reviews but feel compeled to review this product as this is the second time I've purchased this item...in two weeks. Left my book at the pool and of course it was gone! While my review is somewhat degraded by the fact that I haven't used this product long enough to assess its results, it was nevertheless simple and provided focus to my sessions.

Outstanding book. I am a relatively new swimmer having seriously trained in swimming for only three months for triathlons. However, I should add that I'm not new to swimming (military and childhood days) just new to competitive swimming. I am not a "program" type person. Never liked workout plans and generally stick to how I feel. Given the fact that I don't know much as to how to adequately balance drilling and swimming, this is perfect.

Two knocks. One is I've never swam competitively and therefore am new to some of the lingo. The glossary section provides good explanation, but (unless someone can help me here) I could not find the explanation for 2-2-2. It explains DESC 2-2-2 but some of the workouts only have 2-2-2 as a description. I've just interpreted it as one in the same, but I think I would be totally lost if I haven't done some reading on swimming and workouts online.

Next con would be I believe some of the distances are not suitable to total beginners. Three months ago, while I could swim, I would be smoked getting across the pool. Now I'm a pretty avid fitness guy and consider myself to be in great shape in general and as a Marine. Before I bought this book, I've competed in five triathlons ranging from sprint (750m) swims to Half 1.2 mile swims. I also got formal swim coaching. I consider the "beginner" workouts to be a pretty good workout. So while I consider myself a noob in the competitive swim world (best 100m time would be 1:35 and avg just over 2:00 for long distance swims), I could not imagine doing these workouts as a true beginner.

Other than that I feel its solid. Didn't have a problem with drying the book off. It's not like I'm flipping pages in the middle of a workout. I simply wipe the page I was using down after a session and no problems. I wish there was a website or forum for people that use this book, but maybe that's asking for much. Highly recommend.

HASH(0x9f341f78) étoiles sur 5 A Small Price for Important Workouts 19 février 2013
Par Amory Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I don't normally rate books like this, but this book is so indispensable that I felt obligated to review it. This book is absolutely worth the price, and it can be used as a supplement to a training plan or as a stand-alone swim plan.

Consider this: Triathlon coaches can cost anywhere between $50 and $200 a month for training plans. Obviously not everyone has that much money to burn on a monthly basis. That is why this book is helpful. This book brings the essential swim workouts that any professional coach would. It's waterproof pages and spiral setup come in handy for pool-side use. If one were looking to use this during the off-season for maintenance there are plenty workouts from which to choose. If one wanted to supplement this to an already existing training plan, there are quick-and-easy workouts to help. If one were looking to use this as a primary source of training, the book includes a workout calendar based on the distance which you are planning to race.

This book does not give advice as to how to swim better. If it did, the title would be different. However, this gives a financially-crunched (and time-crunched) athlete the same workout as something that could be found in a Master's Swim class. If one were to couple this with a local bike shop group ride and a local running shop group run, it could formulate into an economical training plan. Every distance is granted attention from the sprint distance up to the ultra distance.

The abbreviations are easy to understand with explanations for all of them, and the introduction lays out the procedure of the book.

If you're looking for a well-rounded book that cuts straight to the point, then take a chance with this book. It's portable, it's waterproof, and it's convenient for anyone looking to gear up for the swimming portion of a triathlon.

HASH(0x9f344084) étoiles sur 5 ode to book 21 novembre 2014
Par CatLoversUnite - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales Achat vérifié
I use this when swimming almost every day,
It gives my workout structure in every way.
It has beginner sets, and intermediate too,
so you can do what's right for you.
It props up like a tent right by the pool,
the pages are water proof-what a great tool.
Other reviewers complain of confusing directions,
but the included key/definitions bring it back to perfection..... but

The workouts are long, several thousands of yards,
and sometimes that time table just isn't in my cards.
I also like to incorporate other strokes besides free,
but I just change the workout so it's right for me.
