Swimming anatomy made clear

Swimming Anatomy provides a stunning visual perspective on swimmers’ muscles and how they are developed.

Swimming Anatomy includes 74 of the most effective swimming exercises, each with step-by-step descriptions and full-colour anatomical illustrations highlighting the primary muscles in action.

It goes beyond just exercises by placing you on the starting block, in the water and into the throes of competition. Illustrations of the active muscles for starts, turns and the four competitive strokes (freestyle, breaststroke, butterfly and backstroke) show you how each exercise is fundamentally linked to swimming performance.

You’ll also learn how exercises can be modified to target specific areas, improve your form in the water and minimise common swimming injuries. Best of all, you’ll learn how to put it all together to develop a training programme based on your individual needs and goals.

Whether you are training for a 50-metre freestyle race or the open-water stage of a triathlon, Swimming Anatomy will ensure you enter the water prepared to achieve every performance goal.
