Looking to get in shape? Swimming may be the answer!

A pool might not be the first place you think of going when you’re looking to shape up and slim down—but perhaps it should be. No other workout burns calories, boosts metabolism, and firms every muscle in your body (without putting stress on your joints) better than a swimming workout.swimming

These are a few workouts if you’re interested in using the pool to get some exercise:

Breaststroke: Sweep through. Reach your arms overhead, palms together. Rotating your palms outward, pull down until your hands are nearly level with your chin. Bring your hands inward by your chest, then reach again. Whip it. Bend your knees and bring your heels toward your butt. Turn your toes outward and kick your legs back and together (like a frog) as you extend your arms forward.

Backstroke: Eyes up. Look straight up at the sky or ceiling—not at your toes, which causes your hips to sink—so your head is in line with your spine. Make a Y. Reach back with each arm at a 45-degree angle to your body; it places less stress on your shoulders and makes your stroke stronger.

Freestyle is also fan favorite because it’s easy to learn and it burns major calories, as do all these exercises.The swimming pool is a great place to burn calories and build muscle. If you’re a generally adventurous person, swim workouts can also be very helpful should you ever be in a situation where they can be applied to safety.
