I didn't call you fat, I was just stating that they use swimming for fat people as well, thats how versatile the activity is.

Yes you are right, it is good. Its very little impact and they even have fat people like you do swimming. Great to tone up as well.

A word on swimming:

In general, it's a great sport. I can only recommend it.

BUT when you suffer from Asthma, it might be no good, because of the chlorine in the water. You just have to try for yourself what your lungs say to that.
It's the best to swim in a lake or the sea if you have the possibility.

AND i think swimming is good for burning fat, but i wouldn't advise bodybuilders to do it in their pre-contest phase, as it also maintains a small layer of fat under the skin for isolation against the cold. So if you're already thin, don't swim a lot to get ultra-ripped!

Anyone else should swim, though :)

I should :?

swimming scares me. i learned once in england, and totally forgot. i really wish i could do it, but i panic. chlorine kills me, i hate pools.

on a side note i am always playing in really cold water (49 degrees fahrenheit) in local streams, lakes, ocean, etc.

chlorine doesn't affect my asthma, but it does burn my skin or something. Or maybe I am allergic. I get redness all over my lovely face and also some on my back and stomach. I guess my skin is sensitive, I have no tan. I have minus tan
