Swimming is one sport that can improve one''s health that jg is a sport without the force of gravity (non weight barring). Swim fairly minimal risk of physical injury because the whole body weight while swimming detained by water or float. Also
swimming is a sport that most recommended for those who are overweight
(obese), pregnant women and patients with bone joint problems or
arthritis. Swimming has many benefits that can be felt when we do it correctly and regularly, the benefits include:
1. Build muscle
swimming, we move almost all the muscles in the body, from head, neck,
upper limbs, chest, abdomen, back, waist, lower limbs, and feet. When
moving around in the water, the body expends energy is greater because
they have to ''fight'' the mass of water that can strengthen and flex the
muscles of the body.
2. Improve the ability of cardiac function and lung
of water pushed and kicked by members of the body especially the hands
and feet, can stimulate blood flow to the heart, blood vessels, and
lungs. That is, swimming can be categorized as an aerobic exercise in water.
3. Increase height
Swimming is good and right will make the body grow taller (for those who are still in the growth of course).
4. Practicing breathing
Highly recommended for people who get to swim because of asthma and respiratory system crdiovaskular can be strong. Respiratory us become more healthy, smooth, and breathing may become longer.
5. Burn more calories
When swimming, the body will be felt more heavily engaged in the water. Automatic energy required becomes higher, so it can effectively burn about 24% of calories the body.
6. Self safety
swimming we do not have to worry if one day experience things that are
not desirable especially relating to water (falling into the sea, etc.).
7. Relieve stress.
Psychologically, swimming can also make your heart and mind more relaxed. Movement is done with a relaxing swim and slowly, to increase endorphins in the brain. Mood so cool, more cool mind, body chills was free.
swimming, ag body does not ''shock'', are encouraged to do warm-up
movement to prevent muscle cramps at the same time also serves to
increase body temperature and heart rate gradually and doing well after a
swim to cool the body temperature and heart rate did not decrease
drastically with how to swim slowly for 5 minutes.
heating can be started by doing minor movements, such as swinging arms
and legs or walking around the pool for 10-15 minutes. Then
gradually start with one lap to cross the pond, then rest for 30
seconds several times and peak swim for 20-40 minutes without stopping. After several weeks, the exercise could be improved. Instead, changing the style of swimming so that all the muscles trained.
The only ''shortage'' of this sport is apparently less favorable for bone health. The absence of gravity while swimming just a bad influence on bone mass. To fix this, you can menyelinginya with other sports, like jogging, walking, or cycling.
