About this item

For swimmers, McLeod, an athletic trainer and massage therapist who has served on the US Olympic team's medical staff, presents 74 exercises with step-by-step descriptions and anatomical illustrations that show the muscles in action, as well as how each exercise is linked to performance in each of the four competitive strokes. He also explains how the muscles work, and how to adapt exercises to target specific areas, improve form, and minimize injuries. Exercises are organized by body area, with a concluding chapter on whole-body training. There is no bibliography. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
