One of the benefits of swimming is you get constant cardio. Swimming requires you to be constantly moving to keep your body from sinking.
Not only that but swimming also provides strength training! That’s right, water creates a strong resistance and when you swim, your body is working and building strength.
Swimming is also low impact! Swimming is a great choice of exercise for people who have injuries that prevent them from doing higher impact exercises. Swimming will also not cause as much wear on your body which allows you to exercise more often and at higher intensities than other forms of exercise.
If you’re looking for something to help benefit your lungs, swimming may be the answer! Swimming helps your body to make better use of the oxygen being taken in. Lung and breathing improvement can even lead to lower blood pressure!
One of the best things about swimming is that you are in control! No matter what your fitness level or circumstance, you control your pace and the intensity of your workout. You can also alter or change a workout based on your fitness level.
