Fitness swimming is more focused on specific effects like toning your body, cultivating lean, fit silhouette and avoid building up too many muscles. Swimming can help with all this but you have to focus on few things that will make fitness swimming more effective (or effective at all). Here are 3 important facts about fitness swimming training.
Many cyclists and runners mistakenly treat swimming as the ‚easy’, ‚recovery’ activity after intensive training. This can’t be further from the truth! Swimming is incredibly demanding and is working all your body really hard. Recovery is a very important part of your workout plan and it really should be focused on letting your body rest and regenerate. So if you are serious about your fitness training don’t use swimming as recovery because you’ll need…recovery after that ‚recovery’! :)
The thing we often forget about fitness training is that it requires skill. Working on a specifically toned body look really needs to start with discipline and technique. Without it, your workout will result in chaotic and random changes to your body (something like the famous ‚You forgot about the leg day! meme). That said – swimming still might be the safest way to achieve harmonious results. If you add good technique to it, you will see the results faster and you’ll have better control over it.
The truth is that if you don’t feel like your heart is going to jump out of your chest – you’re not trying hard enough. To achieve fitness effects you need to swim really hard! Our pulse is lowered in the water, we weight nothing, cold water slows our heart down and because of it all, you really need to work to get visible results beyond slight toning of the body.
