    Thank you, glad you liked it.

    Holding your breath underwater for the hell of it can only be improved by holding your breath alot. It depends on your lung capacity and how much you're moving.

    While you're swimming (eg, in freestyle) breathing slows you down, therefore the less you breath the faster you go, but make sure you do breath. Many olympic swimmers will only breath once or twice a lap, younger/ less experinced/ less fit swimmers need to breath more often, once every two or three stokes is suggested. Sprint a lap of free style and breath only when you need to. Do this everytime you swim. As you build up a better cadio fitness, the amount of breaths a lap will decline, and you will be able to hold your breath longer. Dont forget to breath out while under.

    Please be careful when just doing underwater swims, holding you breath for to long is detrimental to your health (i have seen a guy faint underwater becasue he held it for so damn long.) If you do this because you think you need to, dont, in an emergency situtation you can hold you breath for surprising amounts of time. I think the brain can go five minutes without oxygen before cell death occurs. Thats from memory.
    What kills poeple is panic.

    Excellent post! I took a swim class years ago. It was a seriously draining workout. I'm actually trying to find an indoor pool here in Austin that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to use. If not, I'll have to stick to the springs....and that's damn chilly.

    Thanks, i know what you mean. Indoor pools are so ludicrusly expensive to run that the cost crops up. The nearest indoor here costs almost 2 or 3 times as much to use that ours.

    They do have a wave pool, two lap pools (1 outdoors) and a diving pool (outside) there though... It's really boring to work at though.

    Great post.
    Swimming was great. You can't get me near a pool now. I enjoyed it for quite awhile. Great exercise that actually helped with my Asthma when I was younger.

    I swam (swimming pool) throughout my childhood up until my university days. I was even selected to represent my district/town in swimming competition, but was never any good meaning I did not win any shiny medals. My favorite was the breast-stroke.

    Then I took the life-guard examination and passed it during my senior high school.

    I would highly recommend swimming as a form of physical exercise/sport.

    whenever i have a client who is overweight and has joint soreness, its the pool. i dont give a **** if i have to drag their ass there and pay for them to go in, they are going in that pool,. aquarobics is the king of exercises for people who are voerweight andhave joint problems because of it. my mum joined an aquarobics class,the amount of weight she and her friends lost because of it is fucking amazing.
