Does slapping your body help before going to swim?

by Matthew Morrison

This weekend I have been to a swimming competition. I noticed there a lot of people who were slapping their muscles before going to swim.

Other people were saying that it does not help others said it helps the blood flow.

Does slapping your body before swimming help?

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for your interesting question :), this I think may be personal choice. Some people do slap themselves a bit before a swim maybe to get a flow of adrenalin? Or like you say to increase the blood flow. I suppose the only way to see if it works to try it yourself....
Let me know how you get on Matthew :) good luck
