I used to swim lanes for an hour or two until our funding was cut.
Try doing some of the exercises on here and some other free workout apps.
I'm just starting the serious workouts and as an out of shape 14 year old, it's not easy.
Any help, advice or if you simply want a chat, I'm here to help.
Racing swimmer since 3 years old. You'd better start swimming more often and just remember swimming doesn't make you slimmer. Neither more muscular. Try some workouts 2-3 times per week. Push ups, Abs, chin ups. But don't overdo. Maybe running a bit. Eat healthy, drink water. Challenge yourself ... I made a commitment. In 3 months I did 100m freeystyle from 1:15 to 1min. And 2km from 23:30 to 21:50. You'll empowered you'll see!
i thought i was the only one. :) been swimming for 11 years now. haha. i'm 18 years old.
Hey, I'm a former Nationals swimmer, and I have alittle advice for you. Your at an age where your peaking for you physical strength and you need to let your body finush its change before you think of slimming down weight wise. Chances are at your age your natrually going to change shape with puberty. If you want to become a better swimmer and imprive some things to do Are:
Cross train in the off season (ie. Dont just swim, run, bike, yoga)
Also you need more than two pracrices a week, try and build up to practicing 5 days a week, so each week add a practice
Lastly swimmer though you may not think it rely on their core, you need to do some short intense ab workouts to improve your core which will give you more stamina.
I do synchronised swimming!!!! I love it. I train 17hrs a week down from 30hrs. Its hard but SO worth it
