7 Reasons Why Athletes Should Dive into Swimming

Not everyone loves swimming, but every athlete will love the benefits they can reap from adding it to their regime. Those triathletes may just be onto something! While it can feel impossible to add every little benefit to your training schedule, swimming is one that is worth your consideration — especially if you’re recovering from an injury or looking to reduce impact in your day-to-day training while still getting stronger.

Here are 7 reasons why you should dive into swimming as an athlete.

Low-Impact, High-Intensity:

Unlike high-impact activities like running, swimming provides a rigorous workout without putting excessive stress on joints, making it ideal for athletes recovering from injuries or looking to prevent them. While swimming might not be at the same level as a HIIT Workout, you’ll definitely see that heart rate skyrocket. Especially for those of us who crush higher impact sports, bringing in something a little less intense on our bodies is a welcome reprieve while still putting in work.

Full-Body Workout:

Every stroke in swimming engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously, from the arms and shoulders to the core and legs, providing athletes with a comprehensive full-body workout that improves strength, endurance, and flexibility. Remember the Law of Balance? Swimming will definitely get you there.

Boost Cardiovascular Endurance:

Swimming is a highly aerobic activity that elevates the heart rate and improves cardiovascular health, enhancing lung capacity, stamina, and overall endurance, which translates to better performance in other sports. Whether you’re spiraling footballs into the endzone, making great leaps in long jump, or dropping in on waves, we all need to breathe, so we should all train to improve our cardiovascular systems. The better fueled our muscles are with oxygen also means faster recovery and greater athletic performance.

Resistance Training in Water:

The constant resistance provided by water forces muscles to work harder with every stroke and kick, helping athletes build lean muscle mass, improve power and explosiveness, and enhance athletic performance without the risk of injury. Training in the water pairs nicely with our Law of Maximizing Input. Every movement is made just a little more difficult than if you were doing it on dry land — You might as well capitalize on those movements, right?

Mental Clarity and Focus:

The rhythmic nature of swimming combined with the soothing properties of water creates a calming and meditative environment that reduces stress, improves focus, and enhances mental clarity, making it an excellent form of active recovery for athletes. It also requires you to think about your breath and stay present. All of these things make up some of the DRYWORLD favorite mindfulness activities that will help improve your game.

Versatility and Adaptability:

Swimming offers endless possibilities for customization, allowing athletes to tailor their workouts to target specific areas of fitness, address weaknesses or imbalances, and explore different techniques, strokes, and training methods. The adaptability of swimming also helps you defeat plateaus — both mental and physical — in your regime. When you’re trying new things and having fun with it, motivation to push yourself and get to the training session remains high.

Accessible to All: 

At DRYWORLD, we love a good fitness community, and swimming is a sport that can be enjoyed by athletes of all ages, levels, and abilities! This offers everyone a welcoming and inclusive environment where individuals can challenge themselves, improve their skills, and reap the numerous physical and mental benefits that swimming has to offer. Plus, you can usually benefit from a good hot tub soak, sauna, or maybe even a cold plunge afterwards to recover depending on your swimming facility.
