The Benefits of Swimming

1. Burns Calories

Swimming has been said to burn more calories than some workouts does. Study say an hour of swimming burns about 500 unwanted calories. It is most obvious one might swim for a longer period than if he should get on the road running. This means you can actually burn more calories if you should be swimming instead of running. Swimming is a unique exercise that involves almost every part of your body.

2. It Lowers the Risk of Heart Attack

A heart attack can leave you lifeless in a couple of minutes. It is therefore very essential to avoid habits that may increase the risk of heart attacks. Eating healthy foods, having enough rest and exercising regularly help lower the risk. Swimming regularly can help regulate and increase blood flow which is good for a healthy heart.

3. Strengthens Core

You being able to move your legs closer to your upper body part and back underneath the water strengthen your core and may increase flexibility. Swimming uses all of your body’s muscles which is what a good workout consists of.

4. Improves Posture

Swimming improves your posture by strengthening your joints and spine. If you’re having problems with your back or you’re someone who is fond of slouching, swimming can help you solve this issue. And who knows, you can go all out to pose for great photos later, LOL.

5. Builds Confidence

There are many sporting and recreational activities that build or boosts confidence and swimming happens to be one of these activities. Being partly covered help individuals to love and accept their looks. Also, continuous swimming may empower some individuals to realize how good they are in that activity. Hence, builds self-esteem and self-confidence.

Stress, anxiety or depression are mental health conditions that need to be addressed. But wait, did you know swimming can improve your overall mental health? Yes! It can. Speaking to someone is a good way to take burdens off one’s shoulder and swimming creates the environment for socialization. Not just this, exercising also improves mood as decreases stress.
