Swimming is a perfect combination of cardio and resistance training. To move through the water, your arms, legs, shoulders, hips, and torso have to work hard. The whole-body energy expenditure raises your heart rate and the fact that you’re underwater forces you to regulate your breathing. The result: one hell of a cardio and resistance training workout!

The truth is that swimming workouts are as good as it gets, for some reasons:

Improves Musculature — With resistance training, you often end up with big, bulky muscle. With cardio, you end up lean with less muscle definition.

The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. It connects the thigh bone to the shin bone. The knee joint is supported by two smaller bones we fibula and patella. The knee bones are connected to the leg muscles by tendons, which help the knee joint to move. Ligaments, on the other hand, connects all 4 knee bones and serves as a stabilizing support for the entire knee during movement or action.

The knee may seem like a minor body part but without proper care, maintenance and nutrition, it can prove to offer a debilitating risk and detrimental to the bodily movement.

The knee provides general support to the upper legs. If pain persists or when you become very uncomfortable walking or even stretching your legs, it’s a sign that you may have something that is treatable or physically serious.

Here’s common symptoms, causes and effects of knee pain to the human body. FOR MORE
