Your Guide To a Water Workout
There are two types of people, those who exercise on a regular basis and those who don't do it nearly enough. Regardless of the category you fit into, swimming is an exercise that can benefit everyone...and summer is a great time of year to get started. So, grab your swimsuits and head for the water. We're going swimming!
On a more scientific note, swimming is a whole-body low-impact exercise, which makes it perfect for everyone. It is a great way to increase range of motion for all the major muscle groups without placing undo stress on joints and ligaments.
Aside from building strength by moving your body through the resistance provided by the water, swimming is also a cardiovascular exercise. As long you have access to a pool, it is an inexpensive and effective way to either cross-train or rehabilitate your body.
For those of you looking to improve your swimming ability, you may want to find either an adult swim coach, or a Master's swimming program (a national organization dedicated to all levels of adult swimming) in your area. Both options are great for improving your technique and breathing, two of the more important aspects of swimming. YMCAs as well as aquatic centers are great places to start your search.
If swimming is your introduction to regular exercise, we recommend you start by improving your vertical strength and core strength through various exercises performed at the shallow end of the pool. Walking and jogging in waist-deep water are two such examples.
Before finding your workout on Swimplan.com, we first recommend you measure the length of the pool where you will be doing the majority of your swimming. Since most workouts are broken down and measured in meters, having an idea of your pool's length will allow you to convert the meters into laps.
The following workout is from Swimplan.com and is just one example of a great workout for a beginning swimmer:
Duration: 30-45 minutes
Warm Up (repeat 2 times)
Build Up (repeat 3 times)
Core (1 time)
Warm Down (1 time)
