When you first learn how to swim, it may seem like nothing more than an exercise in keeping your head above water and moving from one side of the pool to the other as fast as possible. But there’s actually far more going on in your body than meets the eye. Swimming can improve your cardiovascular health and it can even burn off calories. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not also causing you to burp more than usual. Luckily, there are ways to prevent this from happening and to minimize its effects.
How do you burp after swimming?
Most people have swallowed too much water while swimming at some point. Whether you noticed it or not, what happened when you swallowed that extra pool water? Swallowing too much pool water can cause several different symptoms including nausea, bloating and stomach pain. Aside from being uncomfortable, ingesting extra pool water isn’t usually harmful for most people. However, if you have swallowed large amounts of water over a short period of time or are vomiting more than usual, seek medical attention as soon as possible. If you’re concerned about swallowing excess fluids while swimming, try to focus on proper form. And limit your exertion level in order to keep from swallowing too much liquid into your stomach.
Why do I burp after swimming?
Swimming is a great way to get in some exercise, but after you’re done, don’t be surprised if you experience some discomfort. A common cause of swimmer’s burps is swallowing excess air when breathing quickly during your workout. In most cases, it doesn’t have any harmful effects, but there are ways to stop it from happening. Let us explain why you get so much air when swimming and how to handle it.
How long does it take to burp after swimming?
To burp, you need to fill your stomach with air. For many people, it takes about 15 minutes after a meal for their stomachs to fill with enough air to make burping comfortable. If you’re gulping extra air when you’re swimming and notice that you’re always burping long after coming out of the water, consider cutting back on your intake of deep-fried foods and carbonated beverages. These types of food can inflate your stomach—and cause you to hiccup or belch—long after they’ve passed through your digestive system. Try snacking on plain fruit or veggies instead; if nothing else, they won’t expand in your stomach like other foods do.
Tips on how not to burp after swimming
Burping, also known as belching or eructation, happens when air travels up your esophagus and into your mouth. As you swallow that air along with saliva and food, it passes through your digestive system like other foods would. The extra gas in your belly can cause you to feel bloated. Plus, it’s loud. And embarrassing. Here are some tips on how not to burp after swimming.
Now that you know what happens to your body when you swim, remember: proper technique and posture will prevent excess air from being ingested and potentially causing health issues. Avoid snacking on food before a swim, and experiment with different swimming styles until you find one that allows you to be more efficient.
