Fitness does swimming really burn that many calories? Aug 20 2011

Hi! I am a competitive swimmer, and very rarely do I swim a mile without stopping. The key is to do sets of shorter distances, repeat them, do different strokes and speeds, etc, much like weight training or any other sports practice. Between swimming, take moments to breathe, from 20-45 seconds depending on your skill level. Otherwise, yes, our arms would possibly fall off ;)
