Significant improvement in indicators The most characteristic is revealed after a year of regular studies.

Conclusion: swimming exercises positively influenced the anthropometric indicators of women aged 18–25. It has been established that there have been significant improvements in the indices of the functional state of the cardiovascular system of women swimming. It was revealed that the anthropometric indices and indices of the functional state of the cardiovascular system after a year of occupations in comparison with the initial data were significantly high (P(t)<0,01; P(t)<0,001).
