Personally I don’t have asthma, so I did
some research and asked my swimmer friends with asthma about this topic. Here is what I found. Welcome to skills n talents. If you don’t want to miss our next video
about swimming endurance make sure to subscribe. Asthma affects a lot of people. Many of my teammates got into swimming because the doctor recommended the sport because of their asthma. It was found that in the 2008 about 25 percent of Olympic swimmers had verified asthma. In recent studies that I’ll link in the
description they have studied the relationship between swimming and asthma. They indicate that swimming training is well-tolerated in children and adolescents with stable asthma, and increases lung function (moderate strength evidence) and cardio-pulmonary fitness (high strength evidence). If you are fit, asthma symptoms are less easily triggered than when you are unfit. But that comes with almost every sport. so why do doctors recommend swimming? Well, the symptoms are more likely to occur in dry cold weather and when the person overheats. So doctors hypothesized that warm humid conditions might reduce the risk of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction and that swimming could help develop good breathing practices. However, on most studies I found they concluded that whether or not swimming is better than other forms of physical activity cannot be
determined from their experiments . Further adequately powered trials with longer follow-up periods are needed to better assess the long-term benefits of swimming. However, as one of my friends with asthma told me “high levels of chlorine and enclosed swimming pools with inefficient air ventilation made training and competing extremely difficult.” From what I have gathered asthma needs to be treated on a case to case basis. “Be proactive and take asthma medications as directed to help prevent exercise-induced asthma symptoms. Keeping a quick-relief inhaler poolside is
also advisable, in case you experience symptoms while swimming. Swimming is not a treatment for asthma, and medications should always be used as prescribed. Talk to your doctor before starting a new
physical activity.” says Medical advisor: Shilpi Agarwal, M.D. But most importantly if you have asthma and love swimming remember that you can still reach high levels of competition. As four time olympic medalist Peter Vanderkaay said on an interview “Once I found the right long-term action plan, I was able to get where I am today. My doctor, parents, and I worked as a team so that I could continue training,” If you are looking for swimming workouts to develop your endurance we are offering exactly that. Our workouts are used by young swimmers and masters. I also do the workouts and they help me stay disciplined and motivated. So if you want to find out more go to skillswimming.com/swimming-workouts

  1. I have breathing problem for a long time due to my lungs not taking in the air fully. I couldn't last much longer when running or doing the heavy exercise (i.e. aerobic classes). I decided to sign up for the swimming course for the first time as to improve my swimming techniques. The teacher suggested breathing by expanding my upper body more than the lower body. It was hard at first for a while because I usually do the meditation breathing technique (opposite of what the teacher suggested). Eventually, I 'loosened' up the upper body muscles as to allow my lungs to expand more than they used to. Swimming has helped me enormously to extend my 'fall out' point further and further. Now, I could swim much further without taking a long pause to catch up with breathing.

  2. I have been swimming for 8 years and last year the doctors detected me asthma induced by exercise. The doctor said that i could swim like always but i needed to take al the necessary medicaments to continúe. Now i amalmost with any pain on my chest and i al qualifing to the nationals of my country.

  3. Sir long distance(1.5km)swimmers which type of fins(long or short fins) to buy and pls upload a video of last commented tq sir

  4. 수영과 천식

    사실 저는 천식을 앓지 않습니다, 그래서 조사를 좀 하고 천식 증상이 있는 제 헤엄이 친구들에게 이 주제에 대하여 물었습니다. 제가 알아낸 것을 소개합니다.

    스킬스 앤 탤런츠에 오신 것을 환영합니다. 수영 지구력에 관한 우리의 다음 비디오를 놓치고 싶지 않다면 잊지 말고 구독해주세요. 천식을 앓는 사람이 많습니다. 제 팀 동료 중 많은 이들이 천식 때문에 의사가 수영을 추천해서 수영을 시작했습니다. 2008년에는 대략 25%의 올림픽 출전 수영 선수들이 천식으로 진단받았음이 밝혀졌습니다.

    제가 설명 란에 링크한 최근의 연구들에서는 수영과 천식 사이의 상관관계 연구들을 볼 수 있습니다. 그 연구들에 따르면 수영 훈련은 천식 증세가 안정된 어린이들과 어른들이 잘 견뎌낼 수 있으며, 폐 기능을 증진하고 (증거능력 중간), 심폐 건강을 증진시킵니다 (증거능력 높음). 만약 건강하다면, 천식 증상 유발은 건강하지 않을 때보다 쉽지 않습니다. 그렇지만 이러한 이점은 거의 모든 스포츠에 따라옵니다. 그렇다면 의사들은 왜 수영을 추천할까요?

    글쎄요, 천식 증상은 건조하고 차가운 날씨에 그리고 몸에서 열이 날 때 발생하기가 더 쉽습니다. 그래서 의사들은 따뜻하고 습한 환경이 운동으로 인한 기관지 수축의 위험을 줄일 것이라 그래서 수영이 좋은 호흡 습관 계발에 도움될 것이라 가정했습니다. 그렇지만, 제가 찾아낸 대부분의 연구들에서 연구자들은 수영이 다른 형태의 신체 활동보다 더 나은지 아닌지는 그들의 실험으로 결정 내릴 수 없다고 결론 내렸습니다. 수영의 장기간 이점을 더 잘 평가하려면 더 긴 후속 연구 기간을 두면서 보다 충분한 증거를 갖춘 실험들이 필요합니다.

    하지만, 천식을 앓는 제 친구가 말했듯이 "고농도의 염소 그리고 환기가 충분치 못한 폐쇄된 수영장 시설은 훈련과 경기를 아주 힘들게 만듭니다." 제가 그러모은 것들에 따르면 천식은 개별 사례에 따라 치료해야 합니다. "운동으로 인한 천식 증상 예방을 위해 사전에 대비하면서 지도받은 대로 천식약을 가지고 다니십시오. 헤엄 도중 천식 증상 발작에 대비하여 수영장 가에 급속 완화 흡입기 비치 또한 권장합니다.

    수영은 천식에 대한 치료 수단이 아닙니다, 그리고 언제나 처방받은 대로 약물을 사용해야 합니다. 새로운 신체 활동을 시작하기 전에 담당 의사와 상담하십시오." 라고 의학 조언가인 실피 아가왈 의학박사가 말합니다.

    하지만 천식을 앓고 있으면서 수영을 좋아한다면 당신은 여전히 높은 수준의 경쟁에 도달할 수 있음을 기억하는 것이 중요합니다. 올림픽에서 네 개의 메달을 딴 피터 반더케이가 인터뷰에서 말했듯이 "일단 올바른 장기 실행 계획을 세웠기 때문에 저는 오늘 제가 서 있는 이 자리에 오를 수 있었습니다. 제 담당 의사, 부모님, 그리고 저는 한 팀으로서 노력했습니다 그래서 저는 훈련을 계속할 수 있었습니다, "

    만약 여러분이 지구력 계발을 위한 수영 훈련 세트를 찾고 있다면 우리가 정확히 그것을 제공하고 있습니다. 우리 훈련 세트들은 어린 헤엄이들과 마스터즈 헤엄이들이 사용하고 있습니다. 저 또한 그 훈련 세트들을 수행합니다 그리고 그것들은 제가 목표를 잊지 않고 단련을 계속하는 데 도움됩니다. 그러므로 만약 여러분이 더 자세히 알고 싶다면 아래 링크를 방문하십시오:

  5. i have never showed symptoms of asthma untill about a week after i joined the swim team when i had what seemed to be an asthma attack in the pool after doing a couple 50s. since then i have noticed that it gets harder to breath when i am near a pool (especially indoor pools) and i frequently get into coughing fits while swimming.

  6. i have asthma and i always forget to get my inhaler for practice since i have practice everyday and tuesdays and thursdays i have morning practice and afternoon practice so it’s a lot but i usually do 6-8 breaths while swimming maybe getting my inhaler may reduce that? great video as always 🙌

  7. I am an asthmatic swimmer and try to do it competetively. But it's really difficult since im over -allergic to the water (if not salt water). Outdoor swimming pools are for me the same as suicide because of the pollen in the air. i'm also extremely short. Does the swimming help me in every other aspect of my life? Hell yeah!
