Swimming vs Running

  1. Swimming vs Running


    I prefer swimming because its what i have done all my life. What do you guys think?


  2. not sure how old you are but continue swimmimg .Why? because running will eventually take it out of your knees and most runners i see who run who are older say 50 plus, always look as though they really dont want to do it but feel they have to.
    if youve swam all your life , ive no need to tell you that its strength building, ie an anaerobic as well as aerobic exercise.The water provides support and is often recommended for those with arthritic conditions.For all round conditioning , i dont think you can go far wrong with swimming

  3. I say do both. Add in cycling and you have yourself the foundation to work on that Ironman.
    Seriously - do both.

  4. Took half a dose of Recreate, did legs and finished with a slow 15 minute swim in the pool for a body fat burn. You can't beat Swimming. Go Google swimmer images. What's the name of our American swimmer, the 40 year old woman? She's got the body of a 20 year old. Swimming for the win.

    Oh yea...Dara Torres

    I'm 24, was All-American in swimming and water polo, i have always found swimming to be the best, least stressful form of exercise. Played polo in college and thats where my quest for size started. Still do it at least 3 times a week.

    From what i know they were just friends, but im pretty sure i don't know everything

  9. either or! Swimming gets your whole body into it and has a lower impact on your joints! But you cant beat the intensity of a good 3 mile jog
