Example text

As the swimmer rolls into the stroke, the oblique muscle on the opposite side acts as the primary moving muscle, while the oblique on the same side works to stabilize the core and hips. As the leading arm changes, so does the function of the obliques. THE DELTOIDS The deltoids are the bilateral muscles that cover the shoulders. The function of the deltoids is to lift and assist with rotation of the arm. In butterfly, freestyle and backstroke, where the arm recovers out of the water, the deltoids act as primary movers to lift and return the arm to the beginning of the stroke.

The first, commonly known as the shoulder joint, lies under the visible deltoid muscle. This joint allows the extensive rotation of the arm that is so basic to swimming. It is a ball and socket type joint, located where the top of the arm bone meets the shoulder blade. Resembling a golf tee, the end of the arm bone sits on top of a shallow socket in the shoulder blade. The remarkable range of motion allowed by this joint ironically makes it vulnerable to instability. The “ball” is held in place on the “tee” directly by four small muscles that surround the joint, stabilizing it during motion.

Swimming became the passion in Joy’s life. She loved the challenge and confidence that swimming gave her. She kept track of her workouts, recording her yardage and tracking her progress toward benchmarks she set for herself. She read books on swimming science and technique, and incorporated what she learned into her swimming routine, even adding some stretch cord work to her program three times a week. At age 65, Joy was thrilled to become the grandmother of twins. To celebrate this milestone, she decided to enter a competition for adult swimmers.
