    Well I'm pretty impressed by that, >2 inches off the waist in around 5 months, nicely done!

    I did swim team back in middle school. However, my wife is a professional swim instructor and conducts private coaching to competitive swimmers. She has done wonders with improving my technique. Now I just need work on better cardio in the water.

    Haha, well you're clearly in good hands then.
    Curious if she has any feelings on hypoxic style swim workouts.

    Haha, yeah it's like "neuroplasticity(!!!)".
    Oh? You mean "learning"?

    I'm in agreement with this article.

    A sort of diminished returns come to mind as well.

    She uses them for advanced swimmers that already have good control of their breathing. Once you get to that level, hypoxic training can increase lung capacity and help you relax when you are "out of breath." As a result you are more relaxed and using fewer breaths which can increase your speed. But again she only recommends it for advanced swimmers.

    In the same class as training in tired/exhausted state we discussed in another thread recently...

    I found the following link -

    http://www.t-nation.com/diet-fat-los...-not-a-calorie

    is a good primer on understanding the factors involved in weight loss. I have always made the mistake of referring to the 1st law of thermodynamics when the second law seems to be more applicable to humans.

    I think someone earlier in this thread referenced the study the article mentions. An excerpt - "After 12 weeks, both groups lost weight. The aerobic group lost 37 pounds, 27 of which was fat and 10 of which was muscle. The resistance-training group lost 32 pounds, and 32 pounds were fat, 0 was muscle. When resting metabolic rate was calculated after the study, the aerobic group was burning 210 fewer calories daily. In contrast, the resistance-training group had increased their metabolism by 63 calories per day."

    Speaking for myself, the difference in muscle mass during weight loss between the 2 groups was a staggering one. hth.
