    doing weights on the same day as swimming is incredibly difficult, as is doing any combat sports on the same day.. just a heads up

    In which case you'll probably be fine. Swimming never made me ache particularly bad, it just robbed my strength for the rest of that day

    ..of course you are probably a far more efficient swimmer than me..

    I like to do a leisurely 1k ocean swim after a workout, i find it helps me stay loose.

    That's odd, because swimmers as a group (I'm kinda related to a whole swimming club) are some of the least flexible people I know :s

    I disagree.



    It pays to be flexible here.

    I'd avoid lifting weights and swimming. You'll probably drown, and it's a pain in the ass to get the barbell back out of the pool.

    you disagree that all the swimmers I know are inflexible? Do you know them?

    Also.. image FAIL

    EDIT: OP, pick up a yoga book or go to a class. It's not a substitute for weights but it sure helps with injuries and flexibility.

    I even did a little self experiment with a short 15mins of yoga after weights this morning and so far I'm less fatigued.. to the point where I may even box tonight.

    Depends on the club philosophy. Some clubs believe in stretching, some don't (As far as overall. Almost all do arm/shoulder stretches).

    As far as the type of swimming, you want to work up to where you can do a 200 (8 lengths), rest 15-20 seconds, lather rinse repeat for up to 5-10 times if you want to get fitness out of it. To start, you might have to do 25 (1 length), rest 5 seconds, do another, etc.

    But to always do a 25, rest, 25 rest won't do shite for you fitness wise.

    As far as the "freestyle" rules (USA Swimming), you can do any swim stroke you like, with a couple caveats. One, your head must break the surface, other than a specific distance after a start or turn you can be underwater (Not sure the distance, they change it every so often). And, if you are in a medley relay, you cannot choose one of the other three strokes (Breast, back, fly). Most people choose the front/australian crawl because it is fastest, but if you want to whip out the old sidestroke, feel free. :D

    So turns out I can't squat which makes weights not worth the effort at the moment. I've been swimming on and off. I have this problem of my legs always cramping up though. It's always in the calf or ankle area.
