    Swimming laps is one of the least enjoyable forms of exercise I’ve ever done, although I can’t deny it is incredibly effective

      When i swam competitively we dudnt just swim laps we did sets with a specific goal.

      Say try doing 10x25* (single length of the pool) on a timer. Say one minute to start, though ideally you pick a time that gices you no more than 5 to 10 seconds rest.

      I promise that you wont be bored.

      *If you are a more adept swimmer make ot 10x50 or 10x100

          If you are a lazy fuck who isnt trying sure. If your putting in actual effort you wilk probably be vomitting into a garbage can.

          Or see

          Heres another thing swimming nooblets can focus on since you will be slow as fuck. Stroke count.

          Figure out how many strokes it takes to do a 25 (length of pool). Work on trying to get that stroke count lower as succesfully doing so means you are pulling more water, ie getting stronger, and becoming more efficient, ie not wasting energy.

          Your speed will improve and it will make the swimming less boring.

          No kind of training is boring when done with intent and intensity. Only gays complain about boring training because they are too mentally weak to actually push themselves.

    Retarded question here: how do I count how many calories I burn while swimming? Can I just go by how many total meters? I'm a really slow, bad swimmer, would I be burning the same amount of calories doing 25m as a much faster swimmer would doing the same distance?

    • 2 months ago

      No, you have no idea how many cals you burn swimming. How efficiently you swim depends heavily on how good your technique is. You'd probably burn 3x as many calories as a fast swimmer would in the same distance.

        So how do I estimate my TDEE with swimming?

        • 2 months ago
          Anonymous

          you basically can't.
          there are a lot of formulas for estimating that, but I couldn't find a single one that would factor water temperature

          Doesnt make that big of an impact as pools operate in a narrow band.

          Olympic competition pools must be 79 degrees plus or minus 1 degree. Most competitive pools are probably a hair warmer on average say 80 to 81; this is what we kept our competitive club pool at. The average pool is 82 to 85; we kept our fuckaround general pool at 85. A dedicated lap pool will noy exceed 85 and probably be lower 80s because it feels like you are being smothered once the water feels above 85 and you are exerting effort.

          At thr end of the day it doesnt really matter University of Florida did a study with men working out in very cokd water, 68 degrees, compared to men working out in 91 degree water, for 45 minutes. The delta? A whopping 12 calories.

          Just use any calculator to get a general idea its good enough

      also disregard any calorie calculator that does not have water temperature input
      in cold water you burn much more calories for maintaining body temp than on actual swimming
      (and this is the reason swimmers eat so many cals per day)

    Swimming is the best total body exercise and makes one a sex freak, but it takes up so much time to get serious results

    I go 3 or 4 times a week but i'm always tired before I even get into the pool. So I just swim 1 mile breast stroke mainly each time. I think I do front crawl too fast, I get gassed after 50m.
