Is Swimming the Perfect Exercise?

The benefits of swimming are well known. Aerobic, low impact, easy on the joints, enjoyed by young and old alike. Athletes have for years utilized swimming to aid in injury recovery, to stay strong and to maintain fitness. Let’s briefly look at some other benefits of swimming courtesy of LifeHack.org's Sarah Hansen. (Full article here)

• Swimming Improves Muscle Definition and Strength

Swimmers gain muscle strength throughout the entire body. It’s a total body workout.

• Swimming Builds Up Bone Mass

Rats were put in three groups: running, swimming, and a control group with no exercise stimulation. While running still showed the highest increase in Bone Mineral Density, the swimming group also showed benefits over the control group in both BMD and femoral bone weight.

• Swimming Helps You Stay Flexible

Swimming requires you to reach, stretch, twist, and pull your way through the water. Repetitive stretching found in your various strokes also helps with flexibility.

• Swimming Reduces Inflammation

Research also indicates aerobic activities, such as swimming, reduce inflammation that leads to atherosclerosis build-up in the heart.

• Swimming Holds Its Own for Calories Burned

Did you realize swimming can be just as efficient as running on the treadmill. Depending on the stroke you choose and your intensity, swimming can burn equal or greater calories than running.

• Swimming Can Improve Exercise-Induced Asthma

Swimming allows you to breath moist air while you train. Not only does swimming help alleviate asthma symptoms, studies have shown that it can actually improve the overall condition of the lungs.

• Swimming Lowers Stress and Depression

Swimming is calming and meditative, as the sound of your breathing and the water rushing by helps you focus inward and drown out all other distractions. This lowers stress and depression naturally.

• Swimming Can Make You Smarter

Exercise is great for the mind, but can swimming actually make you smarter? Research from Australia focused on kids who took swimming lessons compared to a control group of non-swimmers. The results showed that kids who regularly participated in swimming were able to master language development, fine motor skills, confidence, and physical development sooner than the control group.

• Swimming May Just Lengthen Your Life

Researchers at the University of South Carolina looked at 40,547 men, aged 20 to 90, for over 32 years. The results showed that those who swam had a 50 percent lower death rate than runners, walkers, or men who didn’t exercise.

So there you have it. Live a longer, healthier life by incorporating swimming into your fitness efforts. Swimming is great fun and great for you. Swimming at home year-round in a Catalina Swim Spa from Brady’s is the best way to enjoy swimming at your convenience.
