LANE and rec SWIM

LANE SWIM

We all know that swimming is a fantastic exercise. It works muscle groups all over your body and is great for helping develop both your strength and your endurance. It’s also an important life skill to keep practising, and lane swimming is the ideal environment to train yourself to become an even stronger swimmer. You never know when you might need it. Lane swimming is also a fantastic training ground for swimmers who may take part in amateur events, such as open water swims, triathlons, etc. Regular lane swimming sessions help burn fat and build muscle. This is all because of the extra resistance the water places on your body. Water offers six times as much resistance as air, meaning you need to put six times as much effort into moving yourself through it than you do through air and it’s this resistance that makes lane swimming such great exercise. This extra resistance that water offers, however, is also great for helping you avoid, or recover from, injury. This is because it supports the joints and it means that there’s no impact going through them, meaning you’re much less likely to contract an injury while exercising, while it also helps you build up strength after an injury without the risk of making it worse.
