Swimming is considered one of the best sports to improve overall health, increase muscle tone and get rid of unwanted pounds once and for all.
For all these reasons, this video will focus on the great benefits of swimming to burn body fat; I will also show you the best two exercises to burn stored fat at top speed, and a couple extra tips to improve results even more.
It is commonly said that swimming is one of the best activities to burn fat because, unlike running or riding a bicycle, it puts most of the body’s muscles to work. The heart increases its potency as a result; pumping oxygen faster to reach all corners of the body and increasing the rate at which calories are burnt. Simultaneously, heart disease is prevented.
On a different note, many people cannot do high impact exercises like running, due to problems in the joints, back or hip, which lead them to sedentary lives. If you are one of these people, swimming turns into a very attractive option.
Many people assure that they feel more relaxed and with lower stress levels after a good swimming workout. This is great, because stress increases cortisol levels — a hormone that makes people store a lot fat very easily.
Next, I’ll teach you 2 exercises that will help you burn fat like never before.
The first one consists of swimming evenly at mid intensity for 15-45 minutes. The key to this exercise is being able to swim uniformly and without stopping for a maximum of 45 minutes.
When you do a constant mid intensity cardio (at 60% of your maximum heart rate), your body burns energy that was stored as fat during the whole workout session. Your metabolism will increase its speed as well.
Remember, if you’re new to swimming, start with 5 minutes or less of continuous swim. Don’t get frustrated if you get tired quickly, your strength and stamina will build up over time, until you’re able to complete 45-minute sessions without stopping.
Now for the second exercise!
This one is a bit tougher than last one, but it’s even more potent despite the training time being less than half (duration is 10-20 minutes).
This high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise consists of warming up with a slow 5-10 minute swim, then swimming for 1 minute at 90% of your maximum speed, and after that slowing down for 1 minute; the cycle must be repeated 5-10 times. If you do 5 cycles, your training session will last 10 minutes; if you complete 10, duration will be 20 minutes. Alternatively, you can do 1 or 2 laps at high speed and then 1 or 2, slower.
Your body won’t burn much fat with this exercise, and I know this is not good news… but, once you start doing it, your metabolism will accelerate incredibly and hormones that consume fat will be released in your body. What’s amazing about this is that the fat-burning effect lasts up to 2 whole days! Do you get why it’s so powerful now?
This exercise may be hard to do, but just like the first exercise, you must remember to start slowly, and increase difficulty little by little. Then, what’s important is to outdo yourself gradually until you can complete 5 or 10 cycles.
Now you may be wondering: How many times a week do I need to do these exercises?
You can do mid intensity workouts 4 times a week, but you may add or take away days according to your taste and convenience.
I recommend doing HIIT workouts once or twice a week. This type of exercise is so intense that it requires its very own training session. You may swim an additional 10-20 minutes at mid or low intensity after you finish.
• If you’re a beginner, you may want to train under the supervision of a swimming teacher to avoid all risk of drowning, even more so if you plan on doing the second exercise.
• Make sure you drink a minimum of 2 liters of water a day (the mouthfuls you swallow from the swimming pool don’t count ). If you don’t, your body’s ability to burn fat will be reduced way below its capability and results will take longer to show.
