It’s no secret that swimming is a great way to exercise. Like any aerobic activity, swimming burns fat and improves muscular and cardiovascular health.
Swimming for just 20 to 30 minutes a day can deliver additional benefits beyond walking, jogging, or riding a bike.
Because the density of the body is close to that of water, the body is supported during swimming, resulting in less stress on joints and bones.
While jogging can burn as many calories, it puts more wear and tear on leg joints especially. For this reason, swimming is a popular recommendation for people rehabilitating from injuries, the disabled and the elderly.
By alternating a chosen exercise with a regular swimming program, individuals can exercise different muscle groups, lower strain on hips, knees and ankles and increase lung capacity to achieve total-body fitness more easily.
