Why Flexibility is Key for Swimmers

Why Flexibility is Key for Swimmers

Flexibility should be an important part of your training regime. Ant explains how flexibility has a dramatic effect on what you get out of an exercise. In this example, if you suffer from tight hamstrings, performing a pike on a swiss ball will limit your range of movement. With improved flexibility you can increase your range and engage more muscles at the top of the exercise, in this case the core muscles.
