To get rid of a few extra pounds, just one - a good swim.

Why swim? Because swimming is an ideal workout. It does not give dangerous static loads and very carefully refers to the joints. Swimming makes work many muscles and strengthens the cardiovascular, lymphatic and autonomic system. Also, swimming promotes gas exchange in the lungs and enhances immunity. And that is very nice, replaces massage parlors, especially in the case of sea water with its high concentration of natural salts. But the main thing is swimming suits to lose weight and get with a lot of fun.

It is rumored that weight loss is impossible with swimming. But experts say that for half an hour swimming burns up to 400 calories and the metabolism is accelerated by half. So swimmers spend 25% more energy than the runners, of course, if swimmers, rather than drifting buoys.

If you swim a little better than the ax and the task to hold out on the water at least half an hour for you from the category of "Mission Impossible", then do not be discouraged! Take advantage of circumstances and instead allow their muscles to simply soak in the water, learn how to operate them at full blast.

Armed with a ball, an inflatable mattress or around - in short, that allows you to not be afraid to go to the bottom regardless of how tired you are or at what distance from the shore proved to be. In the first days of training start a swim for half an hour, and gradually bring it up to 45-60 minutes.

The first 5 minutes, just move the water to warm up, and then clutch at his inflatable equipment and start working feet. The scheme is as follows: 5 minutes down the motion, simulating crawl, 2 minutes rest, 5 minutes to simulate Brass, 2 minutes rest. Crawley you take quadriceps, biceps and thighs, buttocks, and the brass will result in the tone of the internal and lateral surface of the legs. Last, you will be especially useful if you are familiar with cellulite is not hearsay. Needless to say, "rest" does not mean that you are entitled to relax and drift: just training intensity can be reduced and start moving in to make it your swimming pace.

Plus put a task to learn to swim longer than you could before the start of training. Gradually increase the distance, coming from a low speed. Practice shows that we are capable of more than themselves by themselves forward. Just that we had never occurred to at least try to improve their sports performance.

Use the time at the resort as a great opportunity not only to relax but also to please themselves noticeably looking better figure. And train yourself to leave the pool, prepare your body for more intense loads, the more so at the lake is your opportunity unlimited. Tired of swimming - collect company and go play water polo. Or go to his chest in the water and attempted to run through. From the classic races in the fresh air, too, should not refuse. 10-15 minutes of light jogging before breakfast accelerate the metabolism, so that after such a charge would be to give yourself a table indulgence. Just remember that with a full stomach to go swimming is no good: the water exerts pressure on the abdomen, so between the swim and meal should be at least an hour.

If you want to lose weight, you can follow along with the fact that during exercise your pulse rate was 130-160 beats per minute. With an intensity of 60-70% of maximum (determines the rate of sensations) per hour you can get rid of 450-800 calories. If you know how to crawl, then change the style of swimming every 100-200 meters, which will result in a tone all muscle groups: legs, back, chest. If the water you feel confident, then it's time to improve their swimming ability. Ideally need to schedule two "serious" swim in the day: the first (morning) - sprint, and the second (evening) - at a great distance. In the morning, after a 10-minute workout on the average pace, try to swim the 50-meter distance at the limit of its capabilities. Then, slowly, overcome about 200 meters and repeat the 50-meter sprint. Perform this cycle 2-4 times.

In the evening, depending on your abilities, try to overcome distance, focusing on indicators: 1-1,5 km in a decent pace, which does not allow you to surrender before the time, but at the same time and relax. In the time indicator it will take not less than 40 minutes - and have to swim at an average speed. If you're tired, pause for a minute or two, turned over on his back and catch your breath, and then again gain momentum.
