Fact Friday:

‘Swimming doesn’t activate the afterburn effect, although it can still be a great workout.’

The Afterburn Effect is the process of throwing your body off of its natural rhythm with intense exercise, forcing it to work harder after the exercise is complete to get back to normal. In essence, this causes it to burn more calories even after the exercise is complete. Though there are a lot of great forms of exercise for activating the Afterburn Effect, swimming is not necessarily one of them. Because the Afterburn Effect has a lot to do with body temperature (raising it), swimming isn’t very efficient because your body temperature is regulated through the water. The other setback of swimming to burn calories is that it is harder to do sprints & really get your body working hard in the water. However, it is important to note that swimming is great exercise, it can help you lose some weight & build toned muscles. Its just not the best exercise for those that are looking to burn the most calories & fat possible.
