Why Should Men Swim

Why Should Men Swim?

HEALTH BENEFITS:  Studies have shown that you can slow down those pesky effects of aging with regular swimming! Every time you dive in, you improve your blood and oxygen flow to your brain; increasing your cardiovascular health can also help you reduce your blood pressure.

Another study from the University of South Carolina, published in 2008, suggests that swimming alone halves the risk of death in men, even compared to those who run and walk. While the research acknowledges that a sedentary lifestyle is the most significant risk factor, it also suggests that swimming better maintains the cardiovascular system as swimmers tend to have lower cholesterol, fasting blood glucose, resting heart rates, and lower levels of a type of blood fat called triglycerides. They, therefore, have lower mortality rates.

Fitness, mobility, and flexibility are all enhanced by swimming. Moving your body through water, which is 830 times denser than air, is a full-body resistance workout, meaning the muscles in your upper body, core, and legs will all be engaged. Let’s remember the positive effects of an elevated heart rate!

Studies have found that swimming/immersion in the water can relieve stress. It can be beneficial to use swimming on off days from the gym to increase mobility and provide an impact-free recovery exercise.

ROLE MODEL – Be a great role model for your children! Help them recognize that swimming is a lifelong and life-saving sport. Teach them from a young age that caring for their body is vital for lifelong health.
