RE: How does swimming build muscle?
I know many body builders take swimming as their workout. I don’t know why they do so.I want to know how swimming builds muscle.
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.
