Easy Swimming Concept
Water is about 800 times denser than air, so your muscles are under constant resistance pull action. It gives you strength, enhances your energy and gives you a more youthful sense of well-being making you feel and look younger.
The low impact means swimming is a great workout for any persons/athletes who need to take it easy on their joints. You can swim at high intensities on a regular basis without feeling wear and tear on your body. Swimming is better than straight up rest for exercise recovery. For when you want to take less exercise and easy.
when you face down, oxygen is at a premium. Inturn, your body adapts to use oxygen more efficiently. It is learnt to take in more air with every breadth and more to release carbon dioxide. This result in lower resting heart rates, lower blood pressure.
by increasing your ability to take in and effectively use oxygen swimming increases your endurance capacity. Air fueled benefits aside, swimming trains your glutes and hamstrings, your core and shoulders.
whether you are recovering from an injury, pregnant, a new mum, aged men and women, swimming can give a great workout (as long as you know how to swim), you control the pace, intensity and what you get out of every session.
Being submerged in the water dulls the amount of sensory information that bombards your body, helping to bring on a feeling of calm. Researchers found out that regular flotation tank sessions were effective at relieving symptons in patients suffering from conditions related to chronic stress. No wonder everybody loves soaking in the bath tub.
regular swimmers are biologically 20 years younger than their peers. Scientists proved that even until you 80th birthday, swimming affects blood pressure, cholesterol levels, cardiovascular performance, central nervous system health, cognitive functioning, muscle mass and blood chemistry to be much more similar to that of your younger self.
you don't sit at your deskwith your arms over your head but when you are in the pool, your arms are constantly sll over the place meaning you need to work your often neglected lats, deltoids and traps. Since swimming is all about staying balanced in water (you move with your both arms and legs), swimming helps you develop the deep stabilizing muscles in your core and lower back that adults often misses compared to gyming.
blood flows to the brain increased by up to 14% when men submerge themselves in water up to their hearts. Researchers believe water pressure on the chest cavity may have something to do with it and they are now studying more on whether water based workout improves blood flow to the brain better than land based exercises.
