Swimming for Fitness

Lesson Summary

LESSON SUMMARY

In this module you studied the following:

Swimming is an excellent exercise for overall fitness; aerobic endurance, power, strength, and flexibility are all enhanced by swim training.

The main principle of fins is to increase the surface area of the foot.

The most important gear for pool training is a good set of goggles.

Interval training is the backbone of a swimming workout.

Swimming workouts should be varied between easy days and hard days.

Good stroke mechanics are not only necessary to develop speed; injury may occur in swimmers from poor technique.

The key to swimming fast is reducing drag as much as possible while maximizing propulsive forces.

Approximately 90% of the work with the freestyle is due to the arm stroke.

Swimmers often develop hypersensitivities and allergic reactions with pool swimming. Ways to minimize your chances of such problems include: wearing goggles, using a nose clip and avoiding any situation where you might breathe a mist or spray that is generated from pool water.
