    Because something is demanding, that doesn't make it....well, anything neccesarily. Quite a few caveats have to be met before you can say:

    1. What exercise is exercise is
    a. And that it's improving something.

    Those points tend to be summarily ignored, in favor of whatever assuming that which makes you sweat and pant is beneficial; in addition to the ol "it works for me" attack.
    I agree. Swimming done correctly doesn't fall in this category.

    I would say you're better off doing half running half swimming than doing all running or all swimming. Running has too much potential to cause damage in the long term, and swimming will lower your bone density if it's all you do. Running will load your bones and joints and help maintain bone density in that regard. Same with cycling as well. If you swim or cycle, you need to balance it out with some good heavy lifting for your bones a few days a week. Else you'll end up with pocky-like skeleton and osteoporosis.

    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    So...yeah, swimming is fine. It's self paced so all this talk of inherent "intensity" or whatever is a bunch of crap. I also enjoy it.

    ok in response to that, thats just the most retarded thing ive ever read in my life. intensity is everything.

    in response to the last comment, yes thats true, swimming is no impact but its also watered down.
    and if used only as an occasional training aid sprinting wont bugger your joints

    Apparently I need to explain what "inherent" and "self paced" means.
