Does swimming give you a good 6 pack or just make you lose a lot of weight?
I know it strengthens the shoulders and arms but what else?
Swimming is a full body workout. But it's not going to give you a six pack.
I can't imagine swimming really working your abs very much, it is a pretty good way to lose weight though
It is possible to get a good 6 pack from swimming. However, you will need a good trainer who will give you the basics of achieving this. Swimming can enable you to lose weight depending on how long you swim and your diet. Get more information on http://www.livestrong.com/article/529114-swimming-to-get-a-six-pack/.
I doubt it will give you much of a six pack, but hey if you want to float better, gain weight!
No. I saw that show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? (which apparently is drink) They do a lot of ab exercises before they even get in the water.
You actually do get a six pack because I got one and I don't do any ab workouts. I just finished swim season and I have to flex but its there.
