    what to do before and after swim practices?

    I'm a 16 year old male and I swim for a club team. I was wondering what I should be doing before and after each of my practices. I know that I should be stretching and rolling but i'm not sure what stretches to do, for how long, and what I should be rolling. I'm asking because I've had a history of muscle pain, and limited range of motion while swimming that Is think is caused by my muscles being to tight.

    I assume your club team has coaches? You should ask your coaches. Your recovery and stretching and stuff depends on your unique situation.
    400 IMer/200 backstroker in another life, now sprinter/breaststroker... Yeah, I don't know how that happened either!

    Ask your gym teacher if your coach can't give you a good answer.

    Does the "club" do any of these?
