I've done just about everything except freestyle since I started swimming. Iâ??ve always been good in back fly and breast and I swam IM for a while. Through high school I swam with a team that practiced a lot more stroke than most teams and I never did much more than ice my shoulders once in a while but my college team isnâ??t particularly serious in practice we swim mostly free and my coach loves to see a 6000 yard practice.
My team doesnâ??t actually have a S&C program. I took it upon myself in the offseason to start lifting heavy 4 days a week squats, dead lifts, benches, and rows because while I still wanted to swim in my last season I wasnâ??t too worried about how well I did and I wanted to gain some weight.
The pain is under my right scapula (the side that has the smaller pec and that I have been breathing to in freestyle). I havenâ??t been back in the water all that long but I havenâ??t had a problem while Iâ??m swimming yet.
