...so, when would be the best times to go swimming- on lifting days? on cardio days? on off days maybe?
Alright. Just curious, do you do any swimming Andy?
Something to note about swimming is that it will define your back nicely but it is also known to legnthen out your muscles which is something most bb's don't want.
if always heard swimming is the best cardio, atleast i know it kicks my ass, im lucky to do a few laps before i collapse and nearly drown :/
id rather play basketball personally though, atleast that has what ive been doing for my cardio lately
Height: 6' 1/2" Age: 24

Back in action...
So, it's to known to actually lengthen your limbs?...or just the muscles? If the limb stays the same length, I don't see how the muscles could lengthen very much longer before running out of room. If swimming really does lengthen muscles, would that give one a greater arm reach (would be useful in boxing)?Originally Posted by TJH
But, I don't want my bicep peak to get smaller. Eek.

the scary part is I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not lol
lol dude if you wanna be huge don't swim...and do minimal carido even when on the cutting stage...
Haha. It's not going to make your limbs longer. That would be both hilarious and amazing. I'm pretty sure most boxers do little to no swimming. Short of dislocating your shoulder, I don't know of any ways to length your limbs....Originally Posted by fixationdarknes
The Reason Boxers Dont Swim Is They Probably Dont Know How
Eh? Why would I do minimal cardio? I can always just eat more for the calories lost. And it's not like anyone who does cardio can't be big.Originally Posted by Gutz981

on a thread-jacking-related-subject
I'd imagine swimming would be pretty good for a boxer. In the summers when I pretend I know how to fight on my punching bag I was surpised that the muscles that got the most sore were not my chest or my arms but my lats and most of us regard swimming as generally being a lat exersize as well.
I think swimmings a good way to streetch out after a weights session.
swimming kicks my ass too much, so i dont do it anymore

I do it because it's probably the most low-impact form of cardio there is. I enjoy running more but I only swim now because I don't want to get any back or knee problems.
