Mini Theatre, Level 4 Tower Block
1 April 2017 – 9am to 5pm

DO YOU EVER FEEL STIFF OR SUFFER FROM MUSCLE ACHES AFTER SWIMMING? Is your training heavy, repetitive, one-sided, or is it light? Do you also work out in the gym regularly? Then this is the workshop for you! Learn how to identify the areas of discomfort in your body and prevent injuries that may disrupt your training regimen.

HOW CAN YOU DO THAT? You need to start by stretching your muscles in a safe manner. When you exercise intensively, your muscles develop tightness and become shortened. By stretching a shortened muscle, you can change the way you move. Your body can then work in a more efficient way and you feel less fatigue, which results in lesser risk of injury. By identifying the key muscles to stretch, your body can be optimally balanced for training and competition.

To register for this event, please go below to our Google Form – closing date for registration 15 March 2017 – limit to Swimming Section members, 30 persons. If you register, but fail to turn up your account will be charged RM30.
