The best way for you to improve as a swimmer is to listen to your coach. But not even the best coach can watch every swimmer all the time. It’s up to YOU to pay attention to details, and to the focus points that will make you faster.

In this video, you’ll have a chance to watch one of the best all-around swimmers in history -- Eric Shanteau.

You’ll see him at race pace...

...and then we’ll slow things down so you can see how he breathes...

...how he kicks...

...how he catches and pulls...

...and how he holds his body in the water.

Like all great swimmers, Eric has signatures in his stroke -- little things that he does that are unique to him and give him an extra edge.

You can look for these signatures on the video, but what you should REALLY look for -- and what Eric will talk about -- are the BASIC things he does in each stroke.

These basic concepts are the things Eric does...that you can do in your own swimming. These are the fundamentals or core focus points that every swimmer can use to improve their technique and go faster.

This video is divided into four sections -- Butterfly...

...Backstroke...

...Breaststroke...

...and Freestyle.

Within each section -- for each of the strokes -- we’ll look at Eric’s key concepts for BODY POSITION, including head and eye position...

...ARM ACTION, including catch, pull, and recovery...

...**KICK*...

...and TIMING.

For each stroke, you’ll learn Eric’s key focus points-- the things that Eric does, that you can try in your own stroke.

If you want to zoom in for a closer look, go to the main menu and click on the special slow-motion bonus section.

In the bonus section you can watch how Eric does each of the seven competitive turns...

...including the crossover turn from back to breast.

On the main menu you’ll also find a special drill section, featuring Eric’s favorite drills for each stroke.

When you try to add Eric’s focus points to your swimming, it’s best not to think about all of them at the same time. Try to focus on one specific thing each day.

When you work on these techniques, it should always be in addition to what your coach is asking you to do...not in place of.

All great swimmers will tell you: Don’t do only what’s asked of you. Always do just a little bit more.

If you do this every day, you’ll set yourself apart...and will step behind the blocks with confidence in yourself and your training.

Now...Let’s look at what one of the world’s fastest IMers does...that you can do today.
