). The article also says that swimming can reduce the joint pain, cholesterol level and make your body more flexible. But I am not very sure about it. Is it really true? Is swimming really a very good exercise? Can it reduce your body weight and make you relaxed from stress and tension? What are all the exercises that can keep your mind and body healthy?
Waiting for your valuable suggestions.
Swimming is a form of aerobic exercise, and is therefore good for your cardiovascular system. Swimming is a fairly efficient form of exercise in terms of time use because you are constantly exercising the entire time you are swimming. And it utilizes more of your muscles than running or biking.
