Topic: Is swimming better than running?

Considering in swimming you have all the water acting as a resistance and you really must use all your body all the time otherwise you will drown.. would you say that swimming beats running as a heart exercise? Most people unless your a human fish can run much faster than they can swim... but for me swimming makes me breathless a lot quicker in a lot shorter distance than running does... I find swimming a lot more fun as well!

Re: Is swimming better than running?

Id say swimming is far better doing than boring running.... running for me get so boring after all just a couple minutes but with swimming so much to do!!!! I'm basing all of this of the fun benefit though not the health benefit I have no clue what better for your cardio health between the two.
