The benefits of swimming for the body

As you probably already know, exercise is essential for your physical and mental well-being. Whether it's dancing, running, bodybuilding, there are a multitude of options, the main thing is to choose the one you are passionate about in order to practice it regularly. However, are you aware that some of these exercises can cause unwanted effects on your body by putting excessive strain on your joints, especially if you suffer from conditions such as chronic back pain or osteoarthritis?

The answer to this lies in swimming, a gentle activity that engages many parts of the body, from head to toe, arms and thighs. Swimming is even known to relieve certain pain and contribute to overall and lasting weight loss. Let's take a closer look at the main health benefits it offers:

The benefits of swimming: immerse yourself in a healthy life with our pool burkinis

1. Use all body muscles

Swimming is an exercise that engages many muscle groups, thus promoting deep strengthening. Water creates resistance when performing movements, requiring increased muscular effort. However, thanks to the buoyancy of the body, the feeling of effort is reduced. In other words, swimming offers the possibility of exerting greater effort without feeling excessive fatigue. We therefore particularly recommend swimming to people who are reluctant to undertake intensive physical exertion and wish to reshape their figure overall.

Did you know that, on average, a moderate one-hour swimming session, such as breaststroke, burns between 500 and 600 calories? For a 30-minute session at high intensity, such as crawl, energy expenditure is estimated between 170 and 280 calories.

2. Preserve the joints

The aquatic environment, where the body floats 80%, considerably reduces the difficulty of physical exercises. Practicing swimming or aquagym in case of osteoarthritis, knee pain or others can therefore be ideal. In addition to joint protection, these activities help restore flexibility and strengthen joints. However, in the event of an injury or persistent pain, it is recommended to consult your doctor or physiotherapist, who can direct you to the swimming or water sports best suited to your condition.

3. Combat blood circulation disorders

Swimming is also recommended if you feel heavy legs and water retention. The alternation between contraction and relaxation of the muscles promotes blood return. In addition, the pressure exerted by the water on the skin acts as lymphatic drainage.

The little extra: this notorious draining action visibly improves the appearance of the skin and contributes to lasting elimination of cellulite. Opting for aquabike practice is highly recommended to effectively combat cellulite in the long term.

4. Increase your breathing skills

Breathing is of crucial importance in the proper execution of various swimming exercises. This practice offers you the opportunity to exercise your heart and improve your lung functions. Indeed, swimming is described as a “cardio” sport, leading to an increase in heart rate and requiring a significant supply of oxygen.

Did you know that swimming is strongly recommended for people with asthma? The humid atmosphere of the swimming pools helps prevent contractions of the bronchi, thus reducing the risk of attacks, while the exercises carried out promote the increase in lung capacity.

The importance of burkinis and Muslim swimsuits dedicated to swimming or aquatic activities

To enjoy swimming, choosing a swimsuit approved for use in the pool is a first necessity.

In addition, being a sport requiring great freedom of movement and good support, it is essential to opt for a pool burkini specially designed for optimal swimming. It would be regrettable to be interrupted in your activity by an unsuitable swimsuit. Muslim swimwear dedicated to swimming helps improve your performance.

It should be noted that pool burkinis have increased resistance to chlorine compared to classic swimsuits.
