Why do you swim? For the health benefits to your heart and lungs? Maybe you are a runner, training on a regular basis, and want to find an activity that keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body. Perhaps you have been doing some other form of land exercise, and now an injury prevents you from putting weight on a knee or ankle. Swimming can help you. Kicking workouts, water aerobics, pool running, or a lap swimming workout can all give you a great exercise session without the high impact.
Regular swimming builds endurance, muscular strength, and cardiovascular fitness. It can serve as a cross-training component to your regular workouts. Before a land workout, you can use the pool for a warm-up session. After a land workout, swimming a few laps can help you cool down, move blood through your muscles to help them recover, and allow you to relax as you glide through the water. Swimming does burn calories-at a rate of about 3 calories per mile per pound of body weight. So if you weigh 150 lbs. and it takes you 30 minutes to swim one mile (1,760 yards, 71 lengths of the pool), then you will burn about 900 calories in one hour!
