People also ask, why do divers dry off between dives?
In many positions (such as pikes and tucks) divers‘ hands hold onto their legs. If the divers‘ hands or legs are wet, it’s easy to lose grip. If a diver loses their grip, well, the dive goes awry and valuable points are lost. To solve that problem, divers use the shammys to dry off in between dives.
One may also ask, why do divers get in a hot tub? The real (and simple) reason is that those diving pools are not particularly warm, and to offset all of the body heat in the room, the building can be pretty chilly too. In order to keep their muscles loose and limber, divers use the hot tub or stand under a warm shower for a minute.
Moreover, why do divers throw towel in water?
Divers use aqua towels because they are able to wring water out of them quickly, dive, and then use it again, because nobody likes drying off with a wet, damp, cold towel! BEFORE the dive, Swimmers will throw their towel in the pool to judge how far away the water is, because the water is clear.
Why do divers have such good bodies?
They’re ripped because it’s easier to jump and control your body when it’s lighter and more muscular. Diving self selects for athletes that are smaller and lighter, or at least with more leg muscles for jumping.
