RMAP - a guide to RMAP from Swim Enland

Swim England have created an online resource (link shown below) which explains the importance of our pre-pool warm ups (RMAP) and gives examples of sample exercises.  An effective swimming specific warm up is vital if swimmers are to perform to their best in the pool.

Swim England have worked with British Swimming to produce a guide to pre-pool routines for swimmers aged approximately 12 to 16.

Please take the time to have a look at these resources as they will help you understand better the importance of warm ups.  It gives good details on just what RMAP is.  Raise/Mobilise/Activate/Prime)
