Why is it bad to swim for too long?
In recent years, the training of competitive swimmers has changed, and they now train with multiple folds. All this excessive swimming training can lead to more overexertion injuries that may not be apparent at first, but keep building up. Shoulder pain is the main common problem swimmers experience while swimming because their muscles have been used repeatedly while swimming, which can lead to muscle strength imbalances in the chest and back. These muscle strength imbalances can lead to a distorted swimming position, which in turn can lead to shoulder pain or a host of other aches and pains.
Swimming equipment is also very important
Swimming goggles-swimming goggles are essential for swimmers at any stage, which will let them see the condition in clear water and also play a big role in their smooth swimming

Warm up: Make sure you warm up properly.Swimmers will have many stretches to warm up. The purpose of these warm-ups is to keep the joints in the shoulder stable.
Hydrate in a timely manner: Finally, be sure to drink plenty of water. In addition to sweating during exercise, being in the pool can dehydrate the body.
Rest: It is important to rest after a certain amount of time because your body is already on alert and if you do not rest enough before continuing, your body will be in a "weighted" state and most vulnerable to injury at this time.
