First Aid Training with Stockholm Swimming Club

First Aid Training with Stockholm Swimming Club

Unpleasant though it may be, the fact remains that accidents happen. Even experiencing it as a bystander, an accident is not a pleasant scene.

At its most basic, first aid is the initial assistance given to a victim of injury or illness. Comprised of relatively simple techniques that can be performed with rudimentary equipment, first aid is usually carried out by a layperson, providing quick medical treatment until professional assistance arrives.

The importance of first aid is hard to overestimate. Read more

Winter swimming

Do you know well how to swim and are you looking for new experience? We have one nice idea for you! Winter swimming can be super exciting challenge full of fun.

The benefits of winter swims are scientifically proven to raise ones feel-good hormones, lower stress and improve sleep (unless you have heart or circulation problems which mean braving icy waters should be avoided).
The cold water causes the blood vessels to constrict to try to retain body heat and the blood pressure increases to avoid cooling down. In the process to protect the body, hormones such as endorphins, are released and act as a pain relief (as well as as an antidepressant) for a few hours. As a result winter bathers are known to lead more active lives and are generally happier and more fulfilled people.

Yoga for swimmers

Gentle on the joints, forgiving of injuries and other physical limitations, and deeply relaxing, swimming and yoga, when practiced together, unite their strengths, making for a more balanced athlete.

Competitive swimmers call it “dryland training”—incorporating other sports into an exercise regimen to compensate for what is missing in a primary workout. A yoga practice can complement even an amateur’s swim routine by introducing two legs of the fitness triad—strength building and flexibility. Asanas (postures) utilize body weight as a powerful source of resistance: Outside of the water, gravity helps to build strength and muscle. In addition, postures take the body through a full range of motion, encouraging flexible, supple muscles that are less prone to injury.
