S2 E5 - Lactate Testing and Biochemistry in Swimming
Listen now
Description
Research on swimming is broad and essential for the evolution of the sport. The level of swimming related scientific research is very advanced, as is the level of coaching. However, as both fields are very demanding, their connection, in terms of knowledge and experience diffusion, is difficult. In-depth reading of scientific papers is needed for a thorough interpretation of their results. However, this is usually time consuming and difficult for non-accustomed readers. The short display (shorter than their abstract) of interesting articles in a simple manner, without meddling, for someone to figure out if an article is helpful (and then go on with full-text reading), is our main intention. Additionally, useful notes from the coaching practice that are based on testing will be posted. The purpose is to assist swimming coaches and relevant sport scientists to keep up with the swimming research progress. So sswimt comes to accelerate the dissemination of information and updates on swimming testing and research with a focus on physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutrition and training!  Our goal is to set off the abundant information provided by eminent sports scientists and swimming coaches, thanks to whom swimming is evolving constantly. Hope you will enjoy it!

In E7 we had the chance to sit down with Adam Baker and Stuart McNarry and discuss how they work in tandem with each other at the Swim Wales HPC in Swansea. We also hear about their preparations with swimmers in the run up to the Tokyo Olympic Games.

In E6 we had the opportunity to sit down with Robin Armayan and hear from him on a range of topics around developing age group swimmers, his own journey as a coach as well as being intelligent racers. A really great discussion worth listening to for any coach.
