The physical benefits of swimming

Training for the cardiovascular system: Swimming is classified as an aerobic exercise, as even a few laps can be very demanding. It reduces blood pressure and the risk of stroke. Swimming reduces the heart rate during rest and increases the heart’s power. It causes the heart to pump the blood more effectively and efficiently. When you are in good aerobic shape, your body uses oxygen more efficiently to sustain movement.

Flexibility: Swimming and water exercises, complemented by a good stretching, can seriously improve your flexibility. The smooth motion helps to lengthen and stretch muscles rather than to increase their volume, making it look more harmonious, healthy and strong.

Moderate load: the water acts as a protective shell around the body, and removes all the unnecessary pressure on the bones, joints and muscles. There are no rough or sharp movements, body shaking. This is one of the safest and most comfortable forms of exercising that can only be found. For those who suffer from joint pain, swimming is a good form of exercise. It is also used by physiotherapists to rehabilitate those who have just been in an accident or undergone surgery.
