Swimming is a fantastic, low-impact workout, but it, too, requires a level of fitness to do it safely and effectively. Many swimmers suffer from shoulder injuries because they rely too heavily on their arms to propel them forward. To get the most benefits from your swim workout, it is important to develop a strong core, and to use that as your center of balance and power so that your arms and legs can work efficiently, and with a lower risk of injury. Once you have achieved the flexibility, core strength and stability and range of motion that allows you to use your body most effectively, you will be able to swim longer and with get better, total-body results.
