People Swimming

Swimming is the activity of moving through water by coordinating the movement of a person’s body and limbs. Typically performed as a type of recreation, exercise, or sport, swimming is one of the most popular recreational activities around the world and is often required as a compulsory skill within educational curricula for young children. Swimming generally refers to the entire range of activities done in water from basic treading of water and floating on pool rafts, to specialized swimming stroke styles used for competitive water sports. Swimming most commonly occurs in controlled and maintained bodies of safe water from private swimming pools, to public pools, competitive pools, lakes, seas, and oceans.

How many calories does swimming burn?

The number of calories burned while swimming depends on the individuals’ metabolism and weight. The amount of calories burned also depends on the type of swimming. Swimming breaststroke for an hour burns a similar number of calories doing a fast freestyle. Butterfly burns the most calories estimating a 130 pound person to burn 649 calories swimming an hour.


What muscles does swimming work?

Swimming is a total body work out, and every major muscle group in the body is being worked. Upper body muscles that are being worked include the pectorals, deltoids, biceps, triceps, and wrist flexors. The calves, quads, hamstrings, glutes, as well as the core, are the lower body muscles that are being worked.

How do you breathe while swimming?

To effectively breathe while swimming, the swimmer needs to be comfortable with full face submersion, and finding a rhythmic breath. During a freestyle swim, exhales need to be performed while submerged underwater; when turning to breathe, the lungs should be empty to inhale fresh air. Forcing a rhythm of the breath needs to be practiced, and this should be constant with no pauses.

Pool Floats - Inner Tubes - Female (Plan)

Inner tubes are round donut shaped flotation devices for use in water. Inner tubes can be made from plastic or rubber, although ones made from rubber are more durable than the plastic ones. The thick, rubber inner tubes are more suitable for floating on a river or lake, while the plastic inner tubes are more acceptable for pool use.

Scuba Divers (Male)
Collection of drawings of male scuba divers illustrated from the side elevation

Scuba divers are humans that go dive deep in water to explore with the aid of oxygen. Scuba divers wear oxygen tanks on their backs, wet suits, goggles, masks, and flippers to be able to swim in areas normally inaccessible by free diving. Scuba divers have to be licensed as there are risks of injury or death associated with scuba diving.

Pool Floats - Rafts - Female (Plan)

Rafts are long, usually rectangular flotation devices for use in a pool. Rafts can be either inflatable or constructed out of a coated foam. Rafts typically feature an elevated head rest to promote comfortable relaxation in the pool. Rafts are good for tanning, as they allow the user to float completely flat and expose either their entire front or back for an even tan.
