Fabio,

Please go to the Training-Technique section of this web site (or use this link: http://www.usms.org/training/technique.htm), and read some of the articles there. I particular like the ones by Emmett Hines. You could also try www.H2Oustonswims.org/articles.html.

Drills and improving stroke mechanics are the biggest items I have found that reduce stroke count. You should throw in some stroke descent sets from time to time. Working on long smooth swimming is key for me.
