Book Description

May 19, 1999 Ageless Athlete Series
"


Swimming is a sport especially well-suited for older adults. But most books cater to younger, competitive high school and college swimmers and their coaches.

Swimming Past 50 offers age-appropriate fitness and competition training programs as well as many valuable insights for swimmers who have lapped the 50-year mark. Swimming is increasingly popular among this growing age group as it is an ideal sport for developing cardiovascular fitness while putting little or no wear and tear on bones and joints. This book provides special insights and recommendations for mature swimmers. Whether you swim to stay in shape or compete as a Masters swimmer, you'll find the material useful and accurate.

Authors Mel Goldstein and Dave Tanner know their subject matter well. Both swam at Indiana University under the tutelage of legendary coach James ""Doc"" Counsilman. Goldstein went on to coach Masters swimmers and to swim competitively, and he currently ranks among the top ten nationally in the 60 to 64 age group. Tanner is a world champion and All-American swimmer and also competes in a variety of endurance sports. As an exercise physiologist and high school swim coach, he has studied training methods and schedules for fitness and performance in swimming.

Whether you want to be a more efficient and fit lap swimmer or a faster competitor in the next Masters competition you enter, Swimming Past 50 is your guide to success. Training methods, stroke technique instructions, and drills are accompanied by important age considerations. The book also provides dryland and in-pool training programs for different levels of age 50 and over swimmers. As a special bonus, the authors have included sample workout schedules for the entire year.

Age was always a poor excuse not to swim. Now Swimming Past 50 shows there's no excuse at all, so jump right in.

Editorial Reviews

Review

""""Many thanks to Mel and Dave for continuing Doc's unselfish tradition of sharing knowledge with others. Having a complete book specific to the mature swimmer is a great motivator. Look out, Mel!"""Bill MullikenOlympic gold medalist, 200-meter breaststroke (1960) """This is a unique study of Masters swimming that covers all aspects of the subject in a logical, readable form. The book is filled with information that will benefit even the most experienced Masters swimmer. It should be added to all team libraries and read by all Masters swimmers and triathletes. I found the chapters on dryland training and on prevention and treatment of injuries to be especially informative, interesting, and relevant for me. The authors have put together a book that will appeal to the many Masters and adult fitness swimmers who are active in different ways in this wonderful sport. It is long overdue."""Jeff FarrellSix-event National and five-event World Masters Champion (1998) Two-event Olympic gold medalist (1960)International Swimming Hall of Fame member "
