A Recipe for Technical Change

Ryan Woodruff

I have been pondering recently how to best help my athletes make technical changes.  Below are the ingredients that I have come up with in order to make this possible.  I find it helpful to consider these when asking an athlete to change his or technique.  If it seems to be a struggle, it is likely one of these is missing.

Having difficulty helping a swimmer make a technical change? Which one is he or she missing from the recipe?
