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...

Stroke Length ... what's all the fuss? by 4precious
Most videos of elite swimmers are posted on the web at half speed. So every once in a while, I double the playback speed to get back to real time. And the frequency at which those folks are kicking their legs and pin-wheeling their arms is always a revelation. I'm not sure I would believe how...

Biceps Freestyle Video by Larry Weisenthal
I've posted a 12 MB Windows Media File (wmf) video demonstrating the difference between "conventional" (or "triceps") freestyle vs. "Biceps freestyle." A detailed explanation was posted a week or so ago on another thread, which, unfortunately, degenerated into a flame war. I've been working on it...

long torso, short legs by GoodSwimFan
I read articles about Michael Phelps that say he has the ideal swimmer's body, in particular, a long body with short legs. I'm curious why a long body with short legs is supposed to be good. My guess would be the opposite: that to excel in fly, you need longer legs and a shorter body -- less...

I notice that, when I'm really reaching far in front of during front crawl, I can get a little further reach if I "shrug" my shoulder but I'm concerned this might be bad for my shoulder. I know from weight training that keeping the shoulder down in the socket is important but, given that this is...
