WATER is the first in a five-part series of eBooks by Olympic swimmer and coach Clive Rushton encapsulating 50 years of observation and thinking. It examines how swimmers deal with the incredible complexity of drag and resistance and best align themselves for efficiency and effectiveness. Packed with insights and anecdotes, WATER goes ‘beneath the waves’ to show the cause, effect and consequences of streamlining and it’s antonymic nemesis, drag!

WATER explains why and how swimmers should lower resistance to their movement and covers the first 28 Rules of effective swimming, from ‘making friends with the water’ to ‘the faster you go the longer you need to be’. It explains why swimming is possibly the most difficult sport attempted by humans.

Also included is a preview of MOVING BONES, the second eBook in the series which covers the biomechanics of aquatic propulsion and how to balance the swimmers’ biggest connundrum; the trade-off between resistance and propulsion – stop and go!
