Context: An exercise bout completed several hours prior to an event may improve competitive performance later that same day.Purpose: To examine the influence of morning exercise on afternoon sprint-swimming performance. Methods: Thirteen competitive swimmers (7 male, mean age 19 ± 3 y; 6 female, mean age 17 ± 3 y) completed a morning session of 1200 m of variedintensity swimming (SwimOnly), a combination of varied-intensity swimming and a resistance-exercise routine (SwimDry), orno morning exercise (NoEx). After a 6-h break, swimmers completed a 100-m time trial. Results: Time-trial performance wasfaster in SwimOnly (1.6% ± 0.6, mean ± 90% confidence limit, P Conclusions: Completion of a morning swimming session alone or together with resistance exercise can substantiallyenhance sprint-swimming performance completed later the same day.
