Proper Mechanics of the Swim Stroke

Creating an efficient swimming stroke is a complicated process. It involves not only good form and mechanics but also the understanding of how the body physically moves through the water, how stroke rate and distance per stroke should be taken into consideration, and also determining what training prescription should be applied to develop the energy system in need as well as support the dominant energy system.

In this webinar we will discuss all these topics and more:
* What makes a good swimming stroke for open water
* Common drills for stroke mechanic remediation
* What are stroke rate, distance per stroke, and how do they impact the athlete when changed
* How to determine improvement across multiple metrics
* How does one build an effective swim program to develop speed, as well as aerobic endurance

Additionally, examples of test sets, sets for endurance, speed, and lactic acid tolerance will be provided, and we'll discuss what makes a set an aerobic set versus an anaerobic set and how to create your own workouts moving forward.
