Stroke Length ... what's all the fuss? by 4precious

Impact of rec.sport.swimming by Larry Weisenthal
I've posted on this topic before, but I think that the take home message bears repeating. rec.sport.swimming has a not insignificant impact on the world of swimming. I have first hand experience from my own encounters, but I'm certain that the impact is generalizable to other discussants, as...

Changing waters by [email protected]
If a swimmer is a proficient one-stroke junkie, in the event of the unexpected, does he have a better chance than someone who can do several strokes, but not to quite the same level of proficiency as the 1-stroker? Would someone who is not all that good at any stroke, but capable of demonstating...

This is the season where there are lots of articles offering suggestions for summertime reading. Here are some things that I'm trying out for my summertime swimming. Last summer was the time for working on my lower lumbar arch (remember, don't think "arch your back," think "push up your butt"). ...
