    Default Swimming after Weight Training

    Hi All,

    I would like to do Weight training (45 min-1 hour) first and then Swimming (30min). I enjoy doing my weight Training and swimming.

    My goal is to loose weight and build muscle. I am 5 feet 11 inches , 215 lbs. Some one said, swimming after weight training is bad.

    Can i do the wieghts and swmming one after the other on the same day. Kindly advise.

    Thanks.

    Swimming is excellent cardio! No reason why you can't do it after weight training. Two things to keep in mind is that your swimming isn't so intense that it hinders your recovery or ability to hit the weights with the proper intensity, and be sure to compensate for the amount of calories you burn swimming back into your diet so as to not be in too low of a calorie deficit.

    Hypertrophy is something that can be achieved with pretty much any intensity of load, as long as the work is progressive.

    If you have done it proper way it's not bad. You will use the routine two to three times each week, progressing through each phase. Swimming does exercise almost the entire body, heart, lungs, and muscles with very little joint strain. It is great for general fitness, just not a great way to drop excess pounds.

    Do swimming on your off days mate. If you're lifting and you know you're gonna have to do half an hour of swimming you might hold back to reserve energy for swimming.
