Swimming is one of the best non-weight bearing activities out there and I totally recommend implementing a swim routine into your workout. It’s a great way to burn an enormous amount of calories all while having a blast in the water. Non-weight bearing refers to no weight or pressure being forced onto the joints, thus great for those with injuries, arthritis, or pain.

  • The first step is safety, you should always have another person around in case of an emergency.
  • The second step is to find the one type of workout that works for you (enjoyable and effective). One style consists of just plain sprinting (swimming) while implementing different strokes into the mix.

There are a few different stokes: front crawl, back crawl, side stroke, back stroke, butterfly, and breast stroke. Another type of workout routine is water aerobics; which consist of performing exercise-type movements in the water.
