5 shoulder mobility exercises for swimmers
As a swimmer, you more or less move in the same pattern to propel yourself forward through the water. When you continuously train and use the same muscles to create movement, you will eventually reach a level where your body can not adapt anymore. Or, even worse, lead to overuse injury.
Over time you will lose the ability to move well through your shoulders. Which, in turn, will cause the joint to break down.
Therefore, you want to train the muscles in different positions so that you can move more freely and with greater variation. And better perform the task at hand. By creating more options, you lower the risk of injury and improve how well you perform.
