VeloPress Updates Triathlon's Most Popular Swimming Resource, Swim Workouts for Triathletes
The most popular swimming resource in triathlon is now new and improved. Swim Workouts for Triathletes, 2nd Ed. is the best-selling collection of swim workouts in triathlon. This waterproof book that triathletes can take to the pool will help them make every lap count. The book is now available in bookstores, tri shops, and online. Triathletes and swimmers can download 5 free swim workouts at www.velopress.com/swim.
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 freestyle 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. Triathletes who take Swim Workouts for Triathletes with them to the pool will strengthen their swim and become better triathletes. The second edition of Swim Workouts for Triathletes includes:
• Waterproof, spiral-bound pages with big, high-contrast lettering 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
• Open-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
