Written and Images by Miss But @ 女游團 Swimates
Translation by Wendy Yiu
A book is like a friend. We understand the world and life, or even observe ourselves through texts, and have a deep realization of oneself that we are not alone. PMQ invites different people from design and culture sectors to recommend a book, so that you can enrich yourselves as book therapy.
Why would you recommend this book?
Miss But @ 女游團 Swimates: There is a stagnation period in learning swimming. To make a breakthrough, why not jump out of the water to learn more about this water sport in a scientific way?
Have you ever felt that you have hit the bottleneck no matter how hard you are swimming? "自由式的科學化訓練" is written for people who already know how to swim, love swimming and want to make further progress. The author uses text and images to deconstruct every movement of freestyle in the water, combining theory and training methods, to let readers master the principles behind more freestyle, not just learning to move hands and kick by watching videos. In fact, swimming consists of physical training, strength and speed training, and advanced techniques.
This book combines technical theory, water nature, special strength training methods, and self-training timetables. You can learn how to reduce water resistance, understand more about water nature and improve speed, and enhance swimming power. You can imagine what the direction of the water is like when reading. After reading it, I can't help but want to jump into the water world and get practice. You will realize freestyle is not as simple as you think!
