There are many exercises that are good for weight loss, building muscles, and cardio. A swimming exercise that can improve core strength is the gutbuster drill. Holding a noodle with both hands close to your chest, turn to the right wall of the pool and raise your legs parallel to the bottom. Using your abs and core, kick upward using your feet.
Keep your arms straight and your body vertical. Continue this exercise for five to 10 minutes. Gradually increase the distance you swim, alternating between the right and left walls of the pool.
Another exercise that improves overall posture and stroke power is the superman. This involves getting on all fours and extending your arms above your head.
Once your arms are straight, move them in a wave-like motion while pushing your hips and chest upward and downward. Repeat the movement until you’re fatigued.
For a more challenging exercise, use an ankle band. A pull buoy can also help you stay afloat, and is available in many sporting goods stores.
Then, use a swim parachute to pull your body from the water. A pull buoy can be purchased at any sporting goods store and will make the workout easier. Alternatively, you can use a hand paddle.
It’s a great way to tone the rest of your body as well. but When choosing a swimming exercise, you should consider your overall fitness level and the goals you have for yourself.
