We are going back to Luxembourg this year to train at the National Training Center Coque for our Christmas training camp. Great opportunity for us to train long course for 2 weeks and as last year lay the foundation for LC Nationals later in March.
There was a lot of hype around Chris Ritter’s Surge Strength ebook. I just bought the book which at $4.99 I think is a steal. If you have read it or have experience with Chris’ strength training program please let me know in the comments about your experiences.
Coach Ben Titley was a recent guest on the Morning Swim Show and at the end talked about some details of the iPhone app he’s created to help coaches and swimmers with freestyle technique.
Here’s the description in the iTunes store:
“Welcome to the world’s premier freestyle swimming app by Ben Titley. Ben is the Great Britain head Olympic swimming coach and head coach to multiple World, Commonwealth and European record holders and champions. With help from athletes like Joanne Jackson, Fran Halsall, Ross Davenport, Caitlin McClatchey and Liam Tancock, he will help you understand the swimming stroke of freestyle.”
Speedo rolled out a new platform called Pace Club. It includes a mobile app for the iPhone that allows swimmers to sign up for training programs, log workouts, view professional athletes demonstrating proper technique and share their progress with friends through Pace Club’s virtual “Swim Team,” as well as on Facebook or Twitter.
