Swimming in the pool is a very good form of exercise for a variety of reasons.
First of all, it is one of the most effective ways to lose weight and excess fat. At the same time, one of the most efficient ways to stimulate your muscles, physical, mental and mental health.
Swimming is relatively pleasant as exercise, since it relaxes you, relaxes you and doesn’t make you sweat (obviously). It is ideal for almost all people and ages. Especially for those who have a large body weight, problems with the spine, musculoskeletal problems or low physical condition. Because the water contributes to the small loading of the joints.
How many calories can you burn with a swimming program in the pool?
The truth is that there is no clear answer to this question as there are many factors that need to be taken into account. What is certain, however, is that in general with a swimming program in the pool you will burn at least 200 calories in half an hour of exercise. The intensity of the exercise you do, the breaks between sets, your body mass (ie your weight) and the length of time you swim are some of these factors.
1. If you are close to 60 kg:
With a moderate swim, you will easily burn about 200 calories in less than 30 minutes. And by moderate swimming, we mean doing about 1 kilometer or less in half an hour. With a slower swim (we mean freestyle swimming), you will need more time.
2. If you are close to 80 kg:
The corresponding time intervals to burn 200 calories are 20 and 24 minutes.
As you can see, therefore, swimming has almost only advantages as a form of exercise. That is why it is recommended for all people, regardless of age and physical condition.
Now let’s look at some indicative pool training programs for men and women who are at a moderate level. And by “moderate”, we don’t mean so much in terms of fitness as in terms of knowing how to swim.
