Swimming has always been a great part of my life it takes hard work and determinations to get the results one hopes for. Many athletes don’t see swimming as work hard sport but I beg to differ.

One important thing to always remember is always stretch after the light warm up, stretch every muscles in the body, from head to toes because cramps sure do hurt, especially in the middle of hard work out. Muscles go through a lot in practice, it takes a lot of force to push and break water throughout the swim
