The benefits of swimming are great. This lesson can be attributed not only to the most popular sports, but also to the therapeutic methods used in medicine and rehabilitation processes. Today we will tell you how swimming is useful and where to improve your health in your hometown.

Experts note that swimming is one of those types of physical activity that is almost completely safe: the level of injuries among swimmers is one of the lowest. The body, immersed in the aquatic environment, is optimally supported by water, the load is evenly distributed to all muscle groups and joints, there is no excessive load on specific joints or muscle group (which sometimes leads to injuries).

In the process of swimming, the work of different muscles alternates, some tense up - others relax, this increases their efficiency, develops and contributes to an increase in strength. Smoothness and regularity of movements contributes to the stretching of the muscles and their lengthening, thereby they become stronger, stronger without increasing in volume. In the water, static tension is reduced, the spine is relieved, this contributes to the formation of correct posture. The lack of support for the legs and constant active movement allows you to strengthen the feet and is an excellent prevention against flat feet.

Regular swimming significantly improves the functioning of the circulatory and cardiovascular system. Synchronous work of muscles, coordinated with respiratory movements, helps to strengthen the respiratory muscles, increases tone and increases the vital volume of the lungs. At the same time, the lungs consume the maximum possible amount of oxygen, which enters all organs and systems of the body.

The physical effect of water on the human body (reminiscent of a massage effect) allows you to increase the overall tone of the body, enhance stress resistance, relieve not only physical, but also mental stress.

Swimming is also one of the most effective hardening procedures that significantly increase human immunity and improve the mechanisms of thermoregulation. As a result of this, the adaptive ability of the organism also increases, allowing it to adapt to changes in the external environment.

The fight against excess weight will be very successful if you practice swimming. In half an hour of training, you can get rid of 260 calories. Swimming speeds up metabolic processes and allows you to get rid of fat faster.
