I originally posted these links back in september, but they're so timeless I'll post them again...
The Immune System and the Elite Swimmer: Several researchers have studied the link between training and immunity in swimmers. This 2 part series explores the link.
Superbodies: Dr. Greg Wells is a friend of the Swimming community and to #coachmikepodcast. He did the Superbodies segments for the London 2012 Olympics which were brilliantly put together. Here are a couple of my favorites.
- Swimming Freestyle and the importance of training
neuroreceptors (they ain't gunna train themselves, people!!).
- UPDATE: the above link has been removed, but Greg Wells has a new web series on TSN.ca that should absolutely be watched!
- Gymnastics and Balance Beam. Not as relevant to swimming, but insane what gymnasts can do!
Greg also has a Superbodies book out that I have read and thoroughly enjoyed.
