The Swim: Technique and Training for Triathletes - An "Outside-In" Approach to Freestyle
with Trip Hedrick,
Multi-time Masters National Swimming Champion and former Iowa State University Head Men's Swimming Coach
and Clark Campbell,
former Professional Triathlete and University of Kansas Head Women's Swimming Coach

Disc One, Freestyle Technique, is divided into two parts, Swimming 101 and Swimming 201, with Hedrick and Campbell presenting an instructional progression for freestyle that focuses on an "outside in", extremities-first teaching methodology. In Swimming 101, Hedrick begins in the water with the most basic adaptations to the aquatic environment and then demonstrates a stroke progression beginning with "what the extremities do." He then adds breathing technique and timing to the progression, taking you to the point where it becomes "ability level appropriate" to add body rotation. In Swimming 201, Campbell proceeds with a more advanced level instructional progression including drills that teach a swimmer how to incorporate body rotation into an efficient freestyle. Then, it's "off to the lake" where Campbell offers essential technique, training, and racing strategies for open water.

Disc Two includes Swimming Training, in which Campbell takes you through a classroom segment discussing training methods for swimming. He includes test sets to establish appropriate training zones as well as seasonal, weekly, and daily training strategies. Bonus Features includes a flip turn progression along with training toys/equipment segment to enhance freestyle training!
From novice to seasoned veteran, this DVD is certain to make you a better technical and race-ready swimmer, as well as educating you with training strategies that will help you maximize your invaluable training time!

Cover: the core strength: pilates for triathletes
The Core Strength: Pilates for Triathletes
with June Quick,
Certified Pilates Instructor, licensed Physical Therapist, Certified Athletic Trainer,
and Stanford University Swimming consultant
and featuring Barb Lindquist, #1 Ranked Triathlete and 2004 Olympian

In this excellent Pilates program (Quick affectionately refers to as "Triathalates"), June Quick shares her unique on-land program for multi-sport athletes that uniquely intertwines Pilates exercises to strengthen the core and shoulder girdle, yoga exercises to increase flexibility and lung capacity, and stretching exercises to accommodate the use of the extremities while maintaining posture, line, and balance of the core. The goal of the program is to assist a multi-sport athlete in achieving and maintaining proper posture, line, and balance while running, biking, and swimming. Quick begins this video with a brief anatomy review of the body core and shoulder muscle areas that the program targets: areas crucial to multi-sport athletes. She then proceeds with three specific 20-minute follow-along workouts: 1) Upper core, 2) Middle core, and 3) Lower core. In each workout, Quick leads World-renowned triathlete Barb Lindquist through an "area specific" workout on a "long roll" (foam roller). To facilitate those wanting to work without a foam roll, Quick simultaneously coaches a second demonstrator on a traditional Pilates mat. Each workout also incorporates valuable "prehab" exercises to help prevent the most common multi-sport injuries! As a bonus, Quick offers tips for maintaining proper posture, line, and balance for running, biking, and swimming.
