HOW DO I BURN MAX­I­MUM KILOJOULES IN THE POOL?

Women's Health (South Africa) - - ASK US ANYTHING -

Swim­ming is amaz­ing for fit­ness. The wa­ter re­sis­tance means you work five times harder than run­ning out­doors. For best re­sults, stick to freestyle (you can use other strokes as a warm-up). Use the pool clock to gauge your times swim­ming 200m, 100m, 50m and 25m, then do some pace work. If your 200m time is three min­utes, aim for 2 x 200m in 4:00, 2 x in 3:50, 2 x in 3:40, 2 x in 3:30, 2 x in 3:20. Slowly in­crease speed and de­crease rest time as you im­prove.
