Swimming every day is good for the mind, body, and soul. A dip into your backyard pool or nearby lake does wonders for your health. Unlike other types of cardio exercises like biking or running, swimming works your entire body from head to toe and burns major calories. Thankfully, you don’t need to swim 100,000 yards a week like Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps in order to see results.
What is the result after 2 weeks of swimming?
This is not possible to see results for the first 2 weeks. You have to give yourself time and be patient. Maybe within the first 2 weeks, you will notice something is changing, but within 2 weeks certainly, changes are not easily noticeable.
Why is that?
First, the results from swimming vary from person to person. In addition to depending on many of the factors mentioned above, what your goal is from the practice is very important.
Your result will be directly proportional to your efforts, the harder you work for it, the faster you see the result. Consistency is the key. If you have goals such as weight loss or fat loss, it might take a bit longer because you have to create habits to have a better diet, to eat better, to exercise better. Therefore, don’t expect to see results after 4 weeks of training, your body needs more time than that.
What about a period of time?
When you start to exercise, your body release endorphin so you should feel good immediately. That’s the first result you can see.
In addition, when you are trying to relieve aches and pain, that might feel take sooner because you can relieve a lot of that tension immediately after 4 – 6weeks of exercise.
Then over the 6 to 12 week period, you should notice some changes in your body. For example, your arms are tidy, your bust has grown more, your abdominal muscles tighten and you will find your pants a little wider. Those are the changes you will notice in your body.
How to lose weight by swimming?
Start with 15 to 20 minute swims every other day, and then gradually increase to 30 minute swims five days a week, as your body allows. If you start a new swimming routine at too high an intensity, muscle soreness and fatigue could cause you to give up.
Swim four to five days a week
To lose weight, the more physically active you are, the better. This applies whether you’re jogging, walking, using cardio equipment, or swimming.
The frequency of swimming for weight loss is the same as other cardiovascular exercises, so aim for four to five days a week for the best results
Swim harder and faster
Swimming burns a lot of calories when you’re just starting out. But as your swimming skills improve and you become more efficient, your heart rate doesn’t increase as much.
The solution, according to Johnson, is to swim harder and faster to keep your heart rate up.
Wear a waterproof fitness tracker to monitor your heart rate while swimming. Your target heart rate during a moderate-intensity workout should be about 50 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate.
In conclusion, aesthetic changes and physical changes are not as important as the way you feel after you exercise. So imagine this, one day you feel more alive, that’s winning, that’s the result. Those are the kind of results that matter as well, not just aesthetic changes. And the result you might get is a lifelong result, so don’t be hurry, take time and give your body time to adjust. You just can’t eat a donut at night and expect to be slimmer atter 1 or 2 times at the pool. That is impossible.
And you have to remember that the result you get will depend on how you do it, how long you do it, will you give your 100% concentrated to it or not. “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, just stick to your plan and the best result will come!
