I think this DVDs helpful only for those looking for some reference specifically as high school or University coaches in US.
I guess I didn't understand the introduction of this DVD, but I was under the impression to get some video shots of swimming in long distance way as well as some specific detailed training examples were given for long distance freestyle.

But content is mostly general & seasonal strategy of what types of workout to be done or mental attitude to be used etc and there was no swim demonstration. Hence the video was not helpful for my purpose of learning some specific detailed examples of types of swimming training sets to be done or swimming demonstration for long distance.
