Swim Free. A 10 Day Program of Aquatic Exercises Adapted from Life in the Waterworld.
Eberhardt, Lorraine; Sanborn, Laura
The completely waterproof book contains instructions for an alternative form of swimming exercises based on the movements of 19 water creatures. The exercises can be used by groups or individuals to enhance training programs, to serve as part of a structured synchronized swimming program, or to supplement recreational activities. The book provides a balanced daily program of exercises and strokes that can be used in isolation or in sequence. Following a glossary and sections on preparation and water adjustment, the book presents 10 basic exercise forms and 10 more complex movements. For each, the book gives an introduction and detailed, illustrated instructions; notes the exercise's benefits; and gives information about the water creature on which the exercise is based. (SB)
