HOW TO WARM UP THE UPPER BODY BEFORE SWIMMING
in this video, you will learn how to do warm-ups for the upper body prior to swimming. It is essential that you do warm-ups before beginning any sports activity. This can help improve performance and reduce the risk of injury.
We are going to show you warm-up exercises for the upper body, working from the bottom up: pelvis, wrists, shoulders and neck.
First of all, let's start with the pelvis. Stand with your hands on your hips and make a circular movement with your pelvis.
Continue this circular movement for 20 seconds then change direction, circling in the other direction for 20 seconds.
Now for the wrists. Put your two palms flat against each other. inter-lock your fingers and clasp your hands together.
Rotate your wrists together like this for 30 seconds.
For the third warm-up, we will work on the shoulders. Make broad, circular movements with both arms using a forward motion, for about thirty seconds, then, change direction and use a backward motion. Remember to breathe deeply as you do this exercise.
Do this for one minute.
Finally, the neck. Make several half-circle movements with your head. Hold for two seconds between each movement. Do this exercises slowly, keeping your shoulders relaxed and loose so as not to damage the cervical vertebrae.
To warm-up, you can work on your pelvis, wrists, shoulders and neck. This warm-up should take about ten minutes. Over to you!
