How to warm up for swimming- Top 5 stretches

 

 

Swimming without properly warming up outside the pool is one of the easiest ways to get injured while swimming. I have heard stories of swimmers jumping in the pool without warming up, pulling a muscle, and having to go to the hospital. Don’t let that be you! Stretch before you swim. Here are the top 5 stretches that  I do before getting into the pool:

Stretch 1:

stretch 1- arm extension-chest and anterior shoulder region                

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stretch 2:

stretches 2-anterior thigh region-quadriceps extension                

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stretch 3:

stretches 3-medial thigh region-inner thigh extension            

 

 

 

 

 

Stretch 4:

stretches 4-anterior lower leg            

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stretch 5:

stretches 5- lateral thigh region            

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The book (High-Performance Sports Conditioning) that I got this from is very good and I suggest you give it a read. Please subscribe to my blog. Also leave your comments below and tell me some of the things you would like me to touch on in my next post. I will be happy to get back to you!
