| Off-Topic Board|| Swimming as Part of Weekly Workout - Aubie Spr96 on 8/19/14 at 4:49 pm|
I want to try to add some in to my routine for cardio and losing weight. I did some laps today..... Wow!
Anyway, is there anything to this other than just swimming laps? I alternated between (5) different strokes and did laps for 30 mins. Is that ok or do I need a different routine?
