Swimming is one of the most effective means of health promotion and physical development of man since the first months of life to old age.
The density of water is approximately 775 times the density of air, and hence the difficulty of movement, the speed limit and high energy costs.
The energy consumption when swimming at various distances depending on their length and power. At distances of 100 — 1500 m it is approximately from 100 to 500 K/cal.
The water presure prevents inhalation and during exhalation into the water has to overcome its resistance, which leads to increased load on the respiratory muscles. Continue reading
