Reply To: Warming Up – Cooling Down Bullletin 51
The best race I ever swam was without an in-pool warmup. All I did was took a shower. I know one example doesn’t prove anything but I’ve long been a doubter of how much warming up matters.
It would be hilarious to be the team that shows up to dual meets and doesn’t do any warm up in the pool. I still think it’s useful to try out the blocks and stuff though.
