Swimmers improve most when they believe in the workout and training they are doing. Most coaches know what they do, but few know why they do it leaving swimmers with little trust in their training.
Coaches who can simply and accurately explain the "why" behind the "what" will get the most out of their team. This course is designed to fill that gap!
Add a hard copy book of The Biology of Swimming to supplement the course with more information, stories and a few jokes ;)
"Karl's book has helped me understand and even enjoy the very difficult topic of human physiology. I laughed (who knew Glycolysis could be funny?) and I continue to refer to various chapters throughout the season for support and clarification.
Karl explains the complexity of the human body in clear, simple language that helps both coaches and athletes get straight to the point:
"How can I go fast!?!"For example, last summer I read the Taper chapter to my group three weeks before our big meet and we had the most drama free Taper I've ever been a part of. We had a common language and noticed and named every stage along the way, and this helped all of us feel confident in the process and normalized the sensations that generally trigger uncertainty and doubt.We're doing the same thing with energy systems and I've never had more buy-in with both specific sets and overall cycles because we've got clarity around their purpose.Thank you, Karl, your book has helped me be a better coach!"
