Swimming has many benefits

by admin

Swimming has many health benefits. Above-ground pools are a more affordable option than an in-ground swimming pool. You can use a public pool if you don’t have your own pool or live in a very cold climate. Swimming has many health benefits, so it is important to know them.

Low impact cardio
Exercises that increase your heart rate are vital to fitness. Exercises that increase your heart rate will help you burn more calories and fat.

Duke University carried out a study where they followed two groups totaling 119 inactive individuals. The half of the participants who did weight training for eight-months and the other had cardio for eight-months. The cardio group lost more weight at the end of an eight-month period.

 

Exercise also strengthens your heart so it can function more efficiently. This improves your general well-being.

People who have trouble doing regular cardio can benefit from swimming.

Works your entire body
Swimming works almost every muscle in your body, including your shoulders, arms, glutes and hamstrings.

You have several options if you prefer to focus on one part of your body rather than get a total-body workout. Use a kickboard to force yourself to only use your legs. A pull buoy, on the other hand, will exercise your upper body.

Reduces stress and improves mood
Swimming can also be a great way to relax. In a UK study, participants regularly swam for four months. The new habit gave them a positive outlook, improved sleep, more energy, and a better overall well-being. It is possible that the brain releases serotonin, the “feel good” hormone when you swim.

Swimming can be relaxing because of the rhythm and movements. Swimming can help release tension in the shoulders and back, where people tend to build up tension throughout the day. Swimming requires you to breathe deeply, which is similar to breathing exercises.
