Science of Swimming Faster by Scott Riewald and Scott Rodeo, published by Human Kinetics

Scott Riewald is a former biomechanics director for USA Swimming who has worked with Olympic teams and many of the United States’ top swimmers. He is the co-editor of Science of Swimming Faster, a book about competitive swimming published by Human Kinetics together with Scott Rodeo.

Science of Swimming Faster

Riewald and Rodeo have convened the top international swimming scientists, coaches, and athletes to present the latest science on training, technique, and technology for improving swim performance in the Science of Swimming Faster.

Science of Swimming Faster is the most in-depth, comprehensive, and accessible resource on the subject. From swimming mechanics and technique to the physiological aspects of training and competition, the book takes the latest discoveries in swimming science and shows athletes how to apply them to their training and competition. Special topics include increasing propulsion and reducing drag, strategies for competition day, and merging mind and body in the pool. The contributors also provide stroke-by-stroke analyses of world-record swims and training recommendations specific to various swimming groups, including developing athletes, female athletes, masters swimmers, and open-water swimmers.
