Is swimming a good exercise?

Postby PaulTorresK » Fri Feb 24, 2017 12:45 am

A famous proverb says " Health is wealth". It is actually very true. Only if the body is healthy we will be able to do our work. In this hectic life, I think exercise is very necessary to keep us relaxed. Actually speaking I don't have time to go to the gym for exercising. But recently I came across an article which speaks about the health benefits of swimming(http://www.soldapools.com/blog/service- ... -swimming/). It says that swimming can make you relaxed and can help you to get rid of stress and tension. Is it true? I have a pool at home. So will it serve the purpose? What are all the exercises that can be done at home? Please do share your suggestions.

I started swimming classes on beginning of this year, and the results were astonishing for me. My energy levels increased, my body got toned, and I rarely get sick.

Swimming is also great as unlike most other forms of exercise, it's not taxing on your joints. It improves endurance and strength.

You will burn calories just from the cold and then the fact that laps require whole body . It’s a win win .

Swimming is a great low impact option especially suited to take the stress off your joints. I swim as often as possible

Just started swimming recently myself. I'm not great at it yet but I am building up stamina and my ability. I started out not even being able to put my face in the water, lots of progress for me!

I like to swim every now and then, but if your goal is strength, then I'd not make it the main part of your workout. You can use it after training for relaxing, or during your rest days at a slow pace, so you can remain active.

Hello,

When it comes to cardio, in my experience, nothing is more difficult and makes you feel like your gonna puke than wrestling and swimming.
