Damn straight it is. I used to surf on the circuit and swimming was one of the best work outs my trainer

For getting in boxing shape, nothing beats roadwork imo.

Roadwork is good too but I think swimming takes less of a toll on your body so I'd give it the edge. Plus it works your whole body while running really only works your lower half.

I tried to go swimming once and since I hadn't swam in years, I felt really uncomfortable hopping in a lane surrounded by a bunch of water polo players and other people that knew what they were doing. It was also much more difficult than I thought it would be. Most I could do was a lap at a time, but it was probably because my breathing technique was all sorts of ****ed up.

Btw the worse a swimmer you are the more calories you burn then if you were really good
