Dave Marsh explains shaving SwimMAC Elite for Austin PSS (Interview)

Everyone has a little more drive in workout, a little more pep in their step at meets. They take their recovery more seriously, they start watching their diet more diligently. One person who has seen this effect taking place the last 6 months in his elite group is none other the head women’s olympic coach himself, Dave Marsh.

Dave Marsh explained how training has been going for team elite for the past few months, as well as why he decided to give his pro group a little rest, and even let them shave, for the series stop in Austin.
