"Chubbing Up" after swim career by [email protected]
I swim at a University. The captain of the swim team is a nice gal who sometimes coaches the masters and who lifeguards the lap swimmers. We've always enjoyed chatting with her. Her swim career ended in February at the conclusion of her final season. Since then, she hasn't worked out at all, but...

"dismounting" from the pool at Montreal by brd
Did any other Australians hear that rugby league expert, horse follower and wannabe swimming commentator, Ray Warren, describe a swimmer as "dismounting" from the pool at the world's I can't remember who he was referring to. Anyone remember? He also had both the men and women 100 breaststrokers...

"Dude Swims Like a Lady" by 4precious
Who sings that old rock 'n' roll standby? The one with an electric guitar wailing high while the guy screams, "Dude looks like a Ladeeee!". Well it happened yet again. I'm waiting for the Master's workout to start at the local University. Two females on swim scholarship come on deck, jump in...

"No-sweat workout: water aerobics" by [email protected]
No-sweat workout Aquatic fitness classes seem like a great way for older Americans to stay slim. The water supplies gentle weight resistance and allows for exercise with minimal jarring of the joints. So why are so many young athletes taking a dip alongside their senior peers? at...

"Pool planning is no easy task" by Mike
Pool planning is no easy task While some people enjoy gathering at a community pool, others value having a private getaway on their property. Similar to any other part of the home, in-ground pools can be individualized to the tastes of the owners. at...

"Ride the Power" by [email protected]
My kids wrestle at the local High School. The wrestling room borders the pool, so I overheard the Coach talking to his water polo team. Looked to be the freshman team, or maybe a young teenage club team. He asked the kids if any of them had bodysurfed over the summer. A couple raised their hands....

"slide and glide" by [email protected]
The main purpose of this post is to point to a video of Grant Hackett which I've had for awhile and which I think melds a great deal of what we talk about here on the user group. It's at: http://www.swim.ee/videos/freestyle/free.html It's the ninth one down titled: "Hackett Thorpe catch up...

"Tempo Driven Strokes", David Davies, elite females, and "The Kid" by [email protected]
Let me start out by saying I don't think there's anything new in this post. Just maybe different words to describe what we've talked about in the past. Some rambling thoughts that have been in my head. We've talked a lot about "short stroke" versus "long stroke". I'm not sure those words are...

"Tucking" the arm and Tom Dolan by [email protected]
I think I'm starting to get my money's worth out of Maglischo's book :) For awhile now I've noticed some swimmers in my group who do a very deep catch - arm nearly straight as it drops toward the bottom of the pool. They usually do this while rotating to breath. If you do this your hand will...

"USA! USA! USA! ..." by [email protected]
I go to the Yahoo website, and I'm stunned when I look at the current events part on the right side because the headline reads that Grant Hackett smashed Ian Thorpe's Swimming World Record. They only have a few line items there, so I never would have believed that swimming would make it onto that...
