What are misconceptions?
Misconceptions are concepts inconsistent with scientific fact. Unfortunately for swimmers, many misconceptions have become “conventional wisdom.” STR president Dr. Rod Havriluk writes a monthly article in Swimming World about these misconceptions. After an explanation of a misconception, he provides scientific information about the related concept and an effective alternative. He began the series in January, 2014.
