Article on swimming and fitness for gym chain. L.A. Fitness
Swimming can be a great addition to your fitness routine and will help to tone and strengthen a number of different areas of your body at the same time. As part of your fitness routine swimming offers a type of exercise like no other aerobic exercise does and has multiple health benefits, which will leave you feeling excellent after a session. Swimming to improve your fitness can sound a little daunting to begin with but there is no need to worry as with the right tips pool work can be incorporated into your fitness routine with ease.
Health benefits from swimming training
When in the pool every kick and stroke with your arms becomes a resistance exercise and is more beneficial than jogging as the water is denser than air, which is great for toning arms and legs. There is no harsh impact to the skeletal system as impact is minimal.
Swimming helps to improve your flexibility as your body is put through a range of movements. The variety of movements in the different strokes, from having your arms stretched out in front of you to your legs spread powerfully propelling you forward, will use muscles you may not have used for a while and help to keep ligaments and tendons flexible.
It is also ideal for weight loss as 30 minutes of steady paced lane swimming can burn over 200 calories.
Being in the water can also help to reduce your stress and take you away from all the pressures of work, while helping to get you fitter, helping toning your arms, and being an enjoyable activity. It also helps your lungs, in particular length swimming forces you to take deep breaths, which with training will increase your lung capacity.
Starting out your training in the swimming pool
At the beginning of your workouts you should concentrate on your technique rather than aiming for speed or power. Building a good technique will lead to moving more efficiently through the water and in time this will lead to speed. When you’re in the water it takes your weight, the resistance and pressure means 30 minutes of exercise in the pool is the equivalent of 45 minutes working out on land. It is important to feel comfortable while in the pool and you should not overwork yourself when training. Swimming which makes you breathe more heavily counts as moderate activity, treading water counts as activity and can be ideal for a warm-up.
Your training sessions should be coupled with rest periods. At most three training sessions should take place each week with rest days in-between to allow your body to recover.
Swimming works your whole body so exercise for toning arms, legs, and the torso are all possible within one training session.
Swimming training for those new to the pool
It’s vital to always warm-up properly before undertaking in any intense exercise as part of your fitness routine – this prepares your body for the more intense exercise and reduces the chance of injury. The warm-up should be lighter activity, which increases the heart rate.
• Drilling – this is the section of the workout where you focus on your stroke technique. An example of this can be finger dragging, where, while swimming the front crawl, your fingers do not leave the water as the arm moves forward during the stroke recovery. For added difficulty change how much of your hand stays in the water.
• Kicking – Using just your legs, kicking, complete lengths of the pool while it feels comfortable to do so. This can be done with or without a floating kickboard, but is most effective when using a kickboard, holding your head above the water with your arms outstretched.
• Pulling – This training routine is excellent for toning arms and the upper body muscles. Like the kicking routine your energy will be focused on one area of the body, in this case it will help toning your arms. You should pull yourself along using just your arms for swimming; pull-buoys can be used to support the legs if needed. This exercise will help within toning arms and the muscles around the shoulder.
These should all be combined with a main set, involving one stroke from backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke or the front crawl. You should complete lengths at a pace that suits you. If you are training for aerobic fitness then more lengths at a slower pace should be completed, whereas if you’re including swimming in your fitness routine to increase your strength, toning arms and other muscular groups then fewer lengths should be swam at a faster pace.
As with the warm-up it is crucial you cool down after swimming as this will aid your recovery and improve your overall fitness routine allowing you to get back in the pool faster. So why not take to the pool to improve your overall aerobic fitness, muscle tone and general wellbeing.
