    They are saying when elite swimmers hands enter the water when swimming freestyle, the hand & arm presses down & pulls & pushes back.

    Pressing downward lifts the body up creating less resistance.
    Here's my thought, (not in the article)
    Since it happens between the entry & the catch there's just a moment in the stroke cycle where lift occurs. It's also true that when you lift up you'll drift down

    Pulling & pushing back moves you forward.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Hi,

    On this youtube video is obviois how Phelps and Lochte are moving up and down during the fr leg on 200 IM. I think that they are doing this up/down movenent mainly on breathing side (in this case their right side) and in much smaller range on non-breathing side.

    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQWHv_Bhtuw&feature=fvwrel"]Shanghai 2011 world championships - Swimming 200 Im Ryan Lochte 1:54:00 WR - YouTube[/nomedia]
    To swim is human, to fly is divine!

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    If you really want to swim faster faster watch Olympic swimming,
    TIVO race footage(especially finals),
    FREE up space on your recorders,
    check your channel guide for when races will air on NBC.
    Get set up to watch races online at NBCOlympics.com
    Study the races you care about,
    Study elite swimmers technique,
    pay attention, learn, watch what they do and copy them.
    Play back footage in slow motion.
    Watch it over and over.
    This is likely to be the best filmed Olympics ever.
    My guess is NBC & photographers are going to set up better high speed video and cameras to capture race footage, especially on finishes, in case there's another Phelps/Cavic type finish.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Usually when swimmers ask me how to improve, I ask them:
    What's your GOAL?
    What would you like to accomplish?
    When?
    Where?

    I suggest they they pick a few events and a meet, then get to work.
    If you've picked several events, it helps to consider the order of events at the meet you plan to swim. If you know this well in advance, you might have a few events that are back to back, where you don't get much rest between races. There you have a choice pick one or swim both.

    For an extreme example, take a look at Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, and Missy Franklin's 2012 Olympic Schedules. They are racing certain events on certain days, but when you put down all their events, and consider the days and times they happen, it seems daunting, challenging and difficult. There's no doubt that each has prepared for their events and their schedule of events.

    This is Lochte's most difficult race combination, he swims the 200 BK final 30 minutes before the 200 IM final. Phelps will race fresh which gives him an advantage.

    Missy races the 200 BK semi before. She can cruise the back and comfortably make top 8, but it could hurt her some.

    This is a double for Phelps but he should be able to cruise his swim to make top 8.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Do what works for you.
    Do what you know.

    Sometimes we drift away from doing the things that work best for us.

    When I do what works for me, I swim faster than when I don't. I respond well to strength and speed training and when I don't do enough of it, my 50's, 100's, & 200's aren't as fast as they could & should be.
    Figure out what works for you and do it.

    What are you NOT doing now in your training that you really should and need to do?
    Start doing it, and I 98 & 3/4ths guarantee that you will swim faster faster.

    1) Swim in the same pool type as the target meet (I swam SCM for a LCM meet).
    2) Practice with coached group (I train alone doing unstructured workouts).

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    The Net Effect

    There’s been quite a bit of discussion about Rebecca Soni in The Breastroke Lane. Her technique is unusual and defy’s conventional wisdom.

    On her breastroke pull,
    she does not have much of an insweep and she thrusts with her elbows wider than just about all breastrokers.

    On her kick,
    she doesn’t seem to draw her feet back as far as much as many breastrokers.

    BUT the way she swims breastroke definitely works for her. Her technique reminds us about some important swimming principles:
    momentum, efficiency, resistance and propulsion.

    smontanaro Skip wrote:
    Rebecca Soni's "front end" technique seems to be quite different than other breastrokers: short pull, wide elbows on recovery. In addition, her turnover is faster than other 200m swimmers. Obviously it works for her. Any ideas how she "gets away with it"? She does seem to break a number of conventional wisdom rules.

    Then Fins25 / Mitchell wrote:
    I noticed the same thing from the aerial shots in her 200. It is amazing how wide her elbows are. She still powers her hands in under her chest but just doesn't squeeze her elbows all the way in. There is no doubt it works! It was a great swim. I would love to see a biomechanical analysis of her technique.

    Then Allen Stark shared:
    http://coachsci.sdsu.edu/swim/champion/RS160200.htm


    Then when you click on that link you find

    "HOW CHAMPIONS DO IT" Researched, produced, and prepared by Brent S. Rushall, Ph.D., R.Psy.
    Which is about
    “REBECCA SONI AT 160 m OF HER WORLD RECORD GOLD MEDAL 200 m BREASTSTROKE RACE AT THE 2008 BEIJING OLYMPIC GAMES”

    I feel THE most important points he makes in his analysis are:
    Frames #15 through #17: The legs do not develop "the biggest kicking action possible". Rather, they are positioned to provide the fastest most direct kick, which results in the preparation and propulsive phases being of the shortest duration. Traditional kicking inefficiencies (e.g., drawing up so that thighs are virtually vertical; kicking out-and around, emphasizing the legs coming together) are not shown in this movement pattern.
    Frame #18: The kick's propulsion occurs when the arms, head, and trunk are in a streamlined position. This feature is common amongst modern breaststrokes and departs from the technique of over a decade ago where the body and arms would be driven forward as the legs kicked backward.

    which our community breastroke expert Wayne McCauley wrote:
    Repeating myself, there are two ways of developing more power.

    Breaststrokers like to be very strong and apply that strength along a long pull and kick paths.

    Or what I recommend that nearly everyone can do, is develop more power by a faster pull and strength. Power being strength x distance divided by time.

    A faster pull and especially a faster kick (explosive fast) will get breaststrokers faster.

    That is why I hate many drills, like holding a heavy weight and going slow egg beaters struggling to stay on the waters surface. Now can anyone explain how that helps? It doesn't and never will. Just a waste of precious time.

    MY swimmers do explosive hands, but their explosive forwards all-out egg beater develops leg muscles that will fire much faster, and the drill does one thing that NO other drill does, work the muscles that pull the legs up to the butt. Remember it it the muscles that pull the legs up that get tires way before the muscles that are propulsive firing backwards.
    ____
    It's not how fast you swim, it's how fast you slow down.
    For competition breaststroke information visit: http://www.breaststroke.info/
    Which brings us back to
    momentum, efficiency, resistance and propulsion.

    When we're swimming the body position with the least amount of resistance is streamline, but we can't apply any propulsive power to the water when we're streamlined.
    So we break streamline and move our bodies in certain ways, which increases resistance, then we apply power to the water with kicks and pulls which create propulsion. And it's the net effect of our movements.

    We'd have maximum propulsion if we bent our knees more when when we kick breastroke, but getting into that position creates more resistance.

    Same with dolphin kicking

    The point is we have to strike a balance and when we watch elite swimmers SDK, some very faster swimmers opt for less amplitude, less knee bend and higher frequency.

    Same with breastroke, Soni obviously maximizes the net effect with her movements, even though she might not have an insweep or bend her knees as much as many breastrokers.

    Getting this right, optimizing the net effect with your movements will allow you to swim faster faster.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Ande,

    I am interested in your thoughts regarding the information below. Most people/coaches have always told me to take the first 50 of my 100 free out HARD. When I take it out too hard, I tie up at the end and my performance suffers. I have always maintained that for ME, I should take it out easier in order to be able to take it all the way to the wall. It is the worst feeling to see someone next to you go past you in the last 10 meters and you can do nothing about it!

    I have created two charts below. One is for LCM and the second is for SCY. I have listed my fastest 9 swims in the last eight years and assigned points for each. Nine points is for the fastest time or smallest difference in the two 50 splits, while one point is for the slowest time or the biggest difference in the 50 splits. Nine points goes to the fastest time overall, the fastest first split, fastest second split and nine points to the smallest difference between the two splits.

    Nats meets would be tapered, regional meets would have a very short taper and regular meets would not have any taper.

    I am 63 in 2012 and workout 5 - 6 times a week. I have been doing weight training for about one year and for the eight weeks prior to my latest LCM swim, I was doing very heavy weight training (I stopped 10 days before the meet).

    '09 and prior Nats and Regionals would have been in full body textile suits, '10 in the rubber suit and '11 and '12 in a jammer.

    What assumptions, if any, can you make from this info? I thought it was going to confirm that taking it out easier is a better strategy for me. However, it does not appear that that is necessarily the case. My highest point total in LCM is a tie between the swim that was evenly split with one with a 3.07 difference. My SCY swim that was an even split, is only my 3rd best time (although '10 had the rubber suit).

    Your thoughts please.

    Thank you so much for your time!

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Swimmer's Little Helper

    As we get older and continue training, we're more likely to pull muscles, strain muscles, get injured, and / or have chronic aches & pains.
    If you encounter this:

    1) Gauge the intensity and severity,

    2) determine if you you should adjust your training to make accomodations,

    3) decide if you need medical attention, make an appointment & GO,

    4) consider pain relievers like ibuprophen,

    5) there's many things that can go wrong, each injury is specific, if you encounter trouble. Work with your docs, physical therapist, coach, massuse, chiropractors and your own common sense. You may need to modify your training plans.

    6) Always err on the side of caution. Very often rest & sleep work wonders.

    Thank you Elaine-Iak,
    I just applied the ideas from SFF. We started talking about taking a crack at those recs around May. It helps to have a fast 55 year old, a fast 45 year old, and the 52 year old WR breastroker on my relay.
    Honestly I felt I could go faster in the 1bk, but swam 3 events before it, starting off with a 400 FR, wish I'd skipped the 4 fr & 50 BR and was more rested for the medley relay.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Think Like a Coach, especially if you Coach Yourself

    If you really want to swim faster faster, study swimming, learn, experiment,
    possibly change, but stick with what works.

    Just about every swim coach in America belongs to ASCA the American Swimming Coaches Association. If you go to their website SwimmingCoach.org you'll find the Coaching Resources page which is a true treasure trove of swimming information.

    CHECK IT OUT. Drop by, spend some time, explore, read and make notes. There's so much it might seem overwhelming. Look for a few take aways, it's pretty impossible to change many things about your training but you can find a few. Take a few take aways to apply to your training and preparation.
    Please share what you found and love.
    Please share your take aways.
    Please share your AHAs.

    When I asked Eddie Reese how do swimmers get faster he said:
    1) Improve Technique
    2) Get Stronger,
    3) Train Harder (and fast) [swimmer]
    4) Better Workouts [coach]

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Recently "Why Not" started a thread about Brent S. Rushall's paper
    "Ultra-short Training at Race-pace" 1 from SWIMMING SCIENCE BULLETIN
    Number 40b


    Brent is a Ph.D., R.Psy. Professor Emeritus of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences at San Diego State University

    About

    Rushall's body of work is well worth investigating and can help you swim faster faster.

    Just reading his outlines from APPLIED SPORT PSYCHOLOGY AND COACHING WORKSHOPS FOR ATHLETES AND COACHES can give you ideas and insights in many areas.

    Volumes and Issues of COACHING SCIENCE ABSTRACTS

    In the past, when I've done, short fast training or high intensity training it's worked well for me. It's how I trained when I prepared for 2008 SCY Nationals in Austin. If you'd like to see my work outs from that time drop by Ande's Swimming Blog (click down then forward)
    If you follow my old blog to early June 2008 each work out shows what I did in training that lead to me breaking my 1st individual world.
    50 back 28.24 (which lasted a few hours till Steve Wood went 28.05 at the same meet. A day later I tried to get it back and went 28.14.)

    "Ultra-short Training at Race-pace" training will help you swim faster faster. Rushall offers many wonderful ideas find a few, apply them to your training and see what happens.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Tips: Swimming Faster Faster

    Mistakes

    Don't be afraid to make mistakes, that's how we learn. Make em & correct 'em. Get feedback, get coaching, have one on one technique sessions.

    "What do you first do when you learn to swim?
    You make mistakes, do you not?
    And what happens?
    You make other mistakes, and when you have made all the mistakes you possibly can without drowning - and some of them many times over -
    what do you find?
    That you can swim?
    Well - life is just the same as learning to swim! Do not be afraid of making mistakes, for there is no other way of learning how to live!
    - Alfred Adler

    While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
    - Henry C. Link

    Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
    - Franklin P. Jones

    To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the biggest mistake of all.
    - Peter McWilliams

    Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.
    - Sophia Loren

    A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
    - George Bernard Shaw

    A man's mistakes are his portals of discovery.
    - James Joyce

    Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
    - Mahatma Gandhi

    Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.
    - Oscar Wilde

    Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes.
    - Oscar Wilde

    Mistakes, obviously, show us what needs improving. Without mistakes, how would we know what we had to work on?
    - Peter McWilliams

    Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.
    Art is knowing which ones to keep.
    - Scott Adams

    Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
    - Conrad Hilton

    Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
    - Albert Einstein

    All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.
    - Winston Churchill

    Take chances, make mistakes.
    That's how you grow.
    Pain nourishes your courage.
    You have to fail in order to practice being brave.
    - Mary Tyler Moore

    There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they're necessary to reach the places we've chosen to go.
    - Richard Bach

    The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.
    - John Powell

    If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
    - Mary Pickford

    Fall down seven times, stand up eight.
    - Chinese proverb

    The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything.
    - Theodore Roosevelt

    Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement.
    - Henry Ford

    You just keep pushing. You just keep pushing. I made every mistake that could be made. But I just kept pushing.
    - Rene Descartes

    Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.*
    - Edmund Burke

    I think we all wish we could erase some dark times in our lives. But all of life's experiences, bad and good, make you who you are. Erasing any of life's experiences would be a great mistake.
    - Luis Miguel

    You're gonna make
    A lot of mistakes
    You're gonna get bruised
    By some choices you choose
    All I can say
    Is somewhere along the way
    I hope you learn
    What not to do
    - Ande Rasmussen
