Lap Up Weight Loss

According to an article in the July 2010 issue of Good Housekeeping, you can swim your way to slim. An exercise physiologist, Richard Cotton, M.A.of the American College of Sports Medicine recommends swimming as a way to lose the extra pounds. As you do the freestyle stroke with your right arm, kick your feet three times, then for the same on the left. Swimmers usually kick only one to two times per stroke; by kicking it up a notch this way, you can increase your burn by about 38 percent (that amounts to about 131 calories instead of 95 for just 10 minutes or 394 calories instead of 286 for half an hour). Isn't that COOL!!!

So make swimming a part of your family's activities this summer. You and your children could become healthier and thinner to boot.
