    Check out the blocks, check out the walls/turns, check out the markings on the bottom of the pool etc.

    Swim 400 or less warm-up.

    Do a few (up to 5) race pace 50s on a generous interval.

    That’s it.

    Good advice Glenn.

    @kendrew111
    Warmup has two purposes:

      1. To get warm (blood flow)
      2. Familiarity (with race-specific speed)

    It doesn’t take much to get warm and a few 50s or 25s (depending on the race) at race-speed will do the trick.

    My kids LOVE our warm ups now. They might be 300yrds at most & most of the meets are so flippin crowded they get zero accomplished. Our last LC meet I watched in horror as these teams averaged 2500yrds of warmups/drill/etc!!!

    Typically our kids have to re-warm up before their individual event & that’s when they work on pacing for that event.
