Mark Spitz said, “If you fail to prepare, you’re prepared to fail.”

Faster Swimming gives you the tools to build a seasonal plan that prepares you for your best swims.

This 23-week process (which is also included as an Excel Spreadsheet) enables coaches and swimmers to write daily, detailed workouts that focus on creating speed and power while maintaining the swimmers’ aerobic base.
