My boy is a competitive swimmer, so he does almost all training in the water during swim season. He is in great shape, including upper body and core strength The one drawback I see with him is that the swimming does not condition his joints the way a higher impact exercise would. He struggles big time with sore leg joints after swim season is over and going into track season. Running, jumping rope, heavy bag work, these higher impact exercises, all condition the tendons around the joint and increase bone density. Swimming is good in moderation for boxing , but probably will not condition your joints for higher impact activities. Just something to keep in mind since we're on this topic

A swimmer who has been training for a year has 15% greater lung capacity than a non swimmer? Or am I making that up.

Just do laps, no matter how far you can run or how many rounds you do a lap will zap your energy.

Laps are really killer on some days.

Every summer I work up to an hour of non stop lap swimming. I'm not fast or graceful or powerful but I can last a while. For me it is more therapeutic than anything else. My effort/swim speed is probably analogous to someone going for an hour's walk. I do get a pleasant upper body pump though.

I've never counted but roughly 60-70. When I visit my parents' lake house I swim parallel to shore for a half mile in each direction and it takes roughly an hour or so depending on the current.

I have heard that while swimming is a great exercise the one drawback is that it doesn't help with bone density.

So they don't recommend it for women looking to prevent osteoporosis for example.

I've read it doesn't help with weight loss either since your core temperature never rises.
