No. But it could be a good form of exercise to include in your routine. I’d use it as a form of cardio, not as the primary exercise for strength training or bodybuilding.

Hypertrophy is best achieved through resistance training in a specific set/rep/weight range.

Swimmers didn’t develop good physiques by swimming alone. They also lift weights and do bodyweight exercises to develop the muscles necessary to swim fast.
