Stretches For Swimmers

Stretching for swimmers is super important. I stretch after I run and bike, but sometimes I forget to stretch after a swim. Maybe its because I feel pretty limber from being in the water, but when I do forget, I feel it a few hours later. Stretching for swimmers is also super important because it improves your flexibility which makes you faster in the water. I found a great video from EverymanTri.com that explains why stretching is so important for swimmers (especially for triathletes), and 5 easy stretches you can work on to improve your flexibility and strength in the water.
