    So, are there any swimmers in the house?
    I think swimming is one of the most amazing exercise. I prefer it over gym. But others just think it is a good cardio not a complete exercise.
    What about you guys?.

    Swimming is a complete workout, I know to swim but don't do that regularly.

    Indeed Raja, swimming is a great workout.

    I think swimming is very valuable life skill. I was(probably am) afraid of water and swimming, but i think it's good fun.

    Learnt sometime back and yes it's a complete workout. Right now i am in a phase where i need to adjust my body movement(including breath in and breath-out) while swimming. I actually kind of panic at the moment but reach the otherend somehow.

    yesterday
    12X100 meters. A 200 meter extension, feels very tiring.
