The water pulling that is repeated billions of times while swimming will make your lats grow, well, enlarge. The large, wide back is a unique feature of swimmers regardless of distance or main subject. This big back is intimately related to the next thing that will make people understand that you are a swimmer.

You have the shoulders of a swimmer

V-shape is a popular shape for a swimmer. Possessing a large back and shoulders is sometimes uncomfortable when shopping for a shirt, especially and for girls, a medium-sized shirt is always tight at the shoulder, unable to raise your hand or tighten your chest.

And no matter where you go in the world, you can also declare that as a swimmer when looking at the correlation between their waist and shoulder.

You have prominent triceps

Imagine a little bit, an athlete with broad shoulders, a wide back, and small back arm muscles. It looks weird, right? To accommodate the beautifully developed muscles in the back, swimmers are also blessed with large, strong triceps.

Hair is always wet and shaggy

It’s not too hard to spot an athlete in a crowd by looking at their hair. Even in the winter, they are the ones with wet hair every morning, the collar and shoulders wet all the time. In the summer, when the sun is hot, there are more UV and chlorine rays, the hair will be more shaggy and hard. Not to mention that chlorine turns hair blond without dye and is as dry as straw.


See how many of these things you have? If there is even one factor, congratulations, you are a potential swimmer.

Before starting the competition, you will always see Michael Phelps flexing and then throwing his hands across his chest for his hands to hit the back, then tossing his arms back to each other. Phelps also has very good elasticity in the ankles, along with hyper-extending, those who have this feature will catch more water than the average person.

The movement must be done from the head, long amplitude requires us to have very flexible ribs, shoulders, and back to have lean.

You have good health

I’m not talking about being as strong as a weightlifting athlete, lifting massive weights in the gym, but about general strength (even though swimmer Nathan Adrian can push 2 dumbbells 160 pounds on each side – about 72kg).
