      he's as accomplished because of that, but it's cope to think if someone trained the same he did they wouldn't look amazing if not even better possibly. there's nothing that says perfect body for swimming = perfect aesthetics

      I think it's both, that while the training regime pushes towards the particular physique it also quickly eliminates those that can't cut it.

      This. All olympic swimmers look like this because people with non-swimmer body frames don't excel at swimming. Just like looking like am NBA player is about the frame you're born with. It's not rocket science anons.

      is right, you have to be born with the right frame/build: long torso with big lung capacity, short legs which are more powerful levers for kicking, big feet as good paddles, wide shoulders for big lats and stroke strength. If you have that and a lifetime of good training, coaching, and nutrition, you can be a good swimmer. But it mostly boils down to genes

      swimming from a young age will shape your frame
      same as with gymnastics, ballet, etc.
      that said there's shit like feet size that training will have little or no effect on

      He obviously lifts to supplement swimming.
      Swimming alone will not give you a muscular physique (unless you count 10% BF "muscular").

      swimming won't get you jacket but you will end up with a reasonably aesthetic body (pic related)
      complement it with a modicum of gymceling (really even just some curls and forearm training will do) and you can look 9/10

          How much do you swim tho? Swimming really isnt ideal for pure muscle building, and even doing it at an excessive/elite level (7+ times a week) will not get you "big" in IST standards.

          My gym membership which costs 40 dollars a month includes an indoor swimming hall so I figured why not combine lifting with swimming. Also, swimming was my preferred form of cardio at the time.

          I did a shitty every-other-day lifting regiment that I don't have anymore. It was a full body routine, but very suboptimal. When swimming, I did breast stroke until I could swim 700 meters without rest. Then I started to throw in some freestyle front crawl and did progressive overload until I could swim 500 meters freestyle and a few hundred meters breast stroke, all without rest. I eventually decided that swimming for cardio was time inefficient due to cardio gains and not feeling like doing high intensity swimming. So I started jogging instead, but eventually stopped doing cardio in favour of only lifting. But I'm trying to get back into cardio soon. I got an experienced PT acquaintance to make me a 5x per week program once I decided to stop swimming and have been following that program ever since.

          I'm 188cm and went from 95kg to 82 kg in 4 months but have stalled ever since in terms of weight and strength due to life getting in the way of me working out as hard as I did at first. I'm now 8 months into lifting.

            Pic related was just when my gym progress was about to stall. Bad sleep, finals in school, a week long vacation, a very inconsistent job schedule, and hanging out with friends more consistently got the best of me ever since.

              I can't believe you lost 11 kg between those two pictures. I would have guessed you weighed about the same considering muscle is denser than fat, and you gained a lot of muscle.

              You either carried a lot of fat in your legs or you gained 0 muscle in your legs.

                Both of those statements might be true to a small extent. I don't train legs as consistently as upper body, and me legs have always been chunky. But The second picture is flexed and with a chest pump I believe. It is kind of an angle fraud too to be honest. Pic related is me in the exact same spot, same lighting, completely relaxed and without a pump

                Haha nice, you look good either way but the difference is significant for sure. Make sure you're training your transverse abdominis (natural ab belt) so your belly doesn't stick out like that when you're at rest (pull your abs in whenever you do any ab work or squats/deadlifts).

      Swimming selects for these features, not creates them. Sure, olympic caliber swimoids are all going to have mutant proportions, but the average swimmer will only be fit and trim.

      I go to a neighborhood pool staffed by college students on summer vacation, and all the swimming trainers are fucking gorgeous. None of them have jacked proportions. They're all fit and firm and just basically at the top of their genetic potential.

        It does significantly develop triceps, dorsal laterals and deltoids though since these are the main muscles recruited in swimming. It will not alter your bone structures though. But it definitely will accentuate your V shape. Its a lot of dedication, one might get better result just sticking to the gym.

      . These women already had the genes that you are shitting on, and they merely "floated to the top" of swimming. you can't *make* your upper body / shoulders wider by getting huge lats, that is literally just your bones defining your frame

    They eat a lot to support muscle development.

    Swimming uses a lot of different muscles while being low impact and burns significantly more calories than other types of cardio.

    It's honestly one of the best forms of exercise you can do and the water keeps you cool the entire time.

    Swimming is a feminine sport, so it produces estrogen.
    Same with soccer.
    Masculine sports such as football, weightlifting and street fighting produce testosterone.
