No sport activity can achieve effects comparable to swimming.
Efforts to wave the area in the water while burning energy, boosting metabolism and toning all body parts, do not damage the joints nor create too much pressure.
You will easily get the affirmation of the clear benefits that swimming brings as soon as you look at the images of swimmers; buttocks and thighs slender, but toned, tummy tapered, arms well set.
1. Benefits for everyone
To enjoy the benefits of swimming, there is absolutely no need to win the national championship. Studies by US scientists have done with swimmers such as the form of exercise and those who regularly participate in other muscle training programs to prove it.
The results of their observations were as follows: Those who swim often have less fat tissue, more muscular weight than their peers who regularly participate in other sports.
Swimming has another important strength. Swimming trunks, hats and goggles (optional) are the only equipment needed to start swimming and take care of your performance.
2. Great environment!
Swimming requires the simultaneous operation of multiple muscles, resulting in high energy burning rates and strengthening of the active parts of the body. All types of swimming are done in moderation to allow the body to consume about 500 kcal/hour. Swimming at a more intense pace every hour had to spend 700 kcal!
That’s because, because the underwater environment is over 800 times more dense than air, every movement of the foot or arm requires much better effort than all ground activities. Active swimming forces us to mobilize our whole body muscles: neck, buttocks, arms, shoulder blades, thighs, etc.
Tired of trying to overcome the drag of water, muscles reinforce themselves by speeding up the body’s metabolism – not just during training, but long after that. When swimming, muscles work harder, but at the same time the joints are relaxed differently than on the ground. Water resistance eliminates most of the gravitational force, so when you swim you feel lighter and do not have knee and spine pain.
Even daily swimming never suffers from joint injuries – an effect that cannot be ruled out, for example daily running on asphalt. That’s why swimming is an ideal sport that can be done for a lifetime and according to scientists – has a rejuvenating effect on the body.
Scientific studies have proven that people who swim for years often have younger bodies even up to 20 years of age than birth. Their blood pressure, cholesterol levels, heart function and central nervous system are comparable to their much younger counterparts.
