a valid argument against doping, at least? by Olivier
Currently reading a very philosophical (but interesting ;-) book on high level sport / training / doping. It reminded me about Martin's arguments and discussions here about legalizing doping. For the first time in my life, I had to cope with the strange fact that my guts feeling (doping *is* bad)...

Backstroke improvement already! by Pat
I used the idea of twist/rolling of the shoulders today and noticed that my legs no longer wag from side to side. So, that's a definite improvement! A while back, one poster mentioned that her coach told her to go deeper with her arm when it first entered the water. How does one know how deep...

Swim Slower and Burn More Calories by 4precious
