well swimming you dont sweat, so running is better
I think that's a never ending debate, but it comes down to it depending at which pace you do either...and how bad of form you have when it comes to swimming...the worst it is, the more you have to work at moving
switch it up and see what works for you, I find my breathing is challenged more in swimming, because you don't have access to oxygen as freely as you do running, you have to time it to breath for your pace/strokes
I dont know if you're kidding or not
you still sweat, but you're in the water...
and sweat has nothing to do with quality of a workout, your heart rate dictates that more then anything
Swimming is easier on the knees.
I love swimming, its good for full body workouts.
But proberbly because when i used to run, i'd force myself to run for 30 minutes streight.
Where in swimming, i swim 10 laps, then stop for 30 seconds to rest.
i prefer swimming but i find running more effective
i'd rather swim than run. but i hate pool hair.
I would assume swimming is better as you are using your entire body instead of just your legs. Plus, swimming will give you a kick ass back if you do for a long time. Hell, look at most female college swimmers...their backs look like men's backs.
my advice is to mix it up, but do whatever you like the most for the most part
female fliers are scary.
I love swimming.. but aren't there all those studies on swimming's effects on your muscles?
Good effects surely?
I got much stronger when i used to swim 1 mile every morning, but iv given it up lately, every bit of cardio hurts my bulking
swim, bike, and run.
Stick to more swimming in summer, mixing up sprit laps and endurance. Helps build up a tan and you can go for longer without getting as overheated because your in water
Negative..actually. I don't remember the info. I'm hoping someone will jump in here with a link.
Id say swimming. Its far better for your joints and works more of the body
I dont think thats true. Ive seen people balloon up with crazy cardio routines.
when the pool opens up i do 40 laps, i just put on a snorkel so i dont have to breath and do it
feels really good leans you up well if you do it hard enough to feel it
swimming is better i think but i do the threadmill more
