Why you should workout in the fall, and why it’s even good for you.

Bear Paddle

The first option is a bear paddle. A bear paddle is an alternate form of swimming that was originally used by Native Americans. It’s done by using the arms and hands in a circular motion to propel oneself forward, while the legs are used for stability.

This option is great for those who have had some experience with swimming or who have been taking lessons and want to improve their skill set.

There are many benefits of this form of swimming, including the fact that it’s low impact on the body and it can be done for long periods of time without getting tired. However, there are also drawbacks to this form of swim, including the fact that it’s not very efficient at moving you through water and can make you more likely to get tired than swimming a more traditional swimming stroke like freestyle or breast stroke.
