The best thing you can do before and after your swim session
If there’s one thing important for all athletes to do before and after exercise to prevent injury, it’s stretching. Swimming uses all your main muscle groups and a wide range of motion, so it’s important to remember to warm up your joints before hopping in the pool and to help cool them down afterwards. Take five minutes before and after your swim to complete these stretches and avoid injury and increase your range of motion.
