Dr. Ernie Maglischo has revolutionized how swim coaches train their athletes. The Swimming Faster series has been the standard reading for coaches for over 40 years. His most recent series, A Primer for Swimming Coaches, builds upon his previous work and is an invaluable resource for coaches and athletes looking to apply a more scientific approach to their coaching.
