Swimming is a great exercise for your body and overall wellness. But to get the most out of swimming, you have to figure out what you want to accomplish to get the most health benefits from doing what you love- swimming.
You can do swimming as a healthy activity for your entire life. This is especially great, if you have your own swimming pool. Swimming has the ability to work all the muscles of your body. It builds your overall physical strength and your cardiovascular fitness and endurance.
If you are striving to improve bone density, you will need to do some type of weight bearing exercise.
If you want health benefits without putting the stress on your body that running would do, do swimming. Swimming allows you to do water aerobics, pool running, kicking workouts or any workout you can think to do. You can do a great workout without putting the average strain your body would force on you from running, lifting, or pushing.
If you regularly swim, you can build up endurance, muscle strength, and cardio-vascular fitness.
Use the pool for a warm-up session.
A pool workout is great to do before a dry land workout. By swimming you can gradually increase your heart rate and stimulate your muscle activity. This will help you perform better during dry land workouts.
Do a swim after a land workout.
If you swim a few laps after a land workout, you can cool-down your body, you move blood through your muscles to recover from physical strain and you can mentally relax by gliding through the water.
