It's no secret: most triathletes are weak swimmers. Improving your swim will make you a faster, more confident triathlete, and you'll enjoy your time in the water.

Swim Workouts for Triathletes, 2nd Ed. will help you develop real swimming speed. This waterproof book of 75 swim workouts provides the structure, variety, and drills triathletes need to become more efficient and faster swimmers. Each workout is designed around a specific goal--endurance, speed, form, muscular endurance, or anaerobic endurance--making it easy to prepare for events of different distances and improve all-around swimming skill.

Supplement your current training plan with these workouts or use one of the book's four swim training plans to prepare for triathlon's most popular swim distances. You'll improve your efficiency and feel for the water with illustrated technique drills. New 30-minute workouts help slower swimmers or those with limited pool time get up to speed.

Swim Workouts for Triathletes means no more swimming in circles. Take this waterproof book to the pool with you, and you'll be swimming real workouts that will make you a faster swimmer and a better triathlete.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as I was hoping... I feel as though I learned more from her first book even though it was all about just one stroke. This book seems more like a who's who than a how-to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Join the TI Swimming Revolution If you want to learn how to swim easier and faster plus have more fun while swimming without the struggle - then get this book. His techniques are fairly easy to learn and he teaches the right way to swim. I get comments all the time about my powerful kick - yet it is effortless. He also works on breathing and core strength techniques. If Indigo had more of his products, I would buy every single one!
