    I shoot for constant movement time. Breast stroke for as long as I can, backstroke until I can go again, breast stroke. I just try to never stop for X amount of time. Usually 15-20 minutes. Rest and repeat.

    if you swim every morning for distance, dont stick to just breast stroke

    that level of repetitive motion will fuck with your joints, even while in water.

    :rofl: .


    i'm not good enough to keep going for 20-40 minutes straight. i just take it lap by lap. but then again the way i swim is basically sprinting. it's less technique and more trying to power through the water. the only difference is i don't go fast :o

    I got family right by there



    I need to start swimming. the Dr. told mew not to run and only bike or swim. and biking is for pussies who dont want to actually work hard or have all the time in the day to workout. Gotta learn how to swim again.

    Rocky Marciano, used to train in a pool and he had some crazy powerful hooks. In the summer time I try to get as much of it in as possible. I find swimming has given me a pretty solid core, and it's always been a fun workout for me. I tend to swim excessively though, like 2-4 hours :hs:.
