Reply To: Warming Up – Cooling Down Bullletin 51
We did 200 free, 200 choice, 8×25 @:40. Then some turns and two 25s off the blocks. I’m not convinced that warming up matters at all. I had a couple girls ask if they could skip warm up at section finals (they already had done turns and starts in prelims) and I let them. They performed just as well in finals as they had in prelims.
Our warm up is pretty much just a suggestion. A lot of them do less and I don’t make a big deal out of it. As long as they feel confident with what they are doing that is all I care about.
