    I am a swim mom and have a 14 year old. How important are these stretches and are they required to do all before and after training?

    As a 76 year old Master swimmer who has been doing stretching/warm-up for the almost 40 years that I have been competing, only once have I experience shoulder injury and it was relatively minor. Must be doing something right… but don’t know exactly what. My warm-up are close to what Dr.Gary Hall Sr. recommends. David McIntyre, Gold Coast Masters.
