  • Read Mike’s story here! https://bit.ly/2Ax9Dmh

    How has swimming helped you get fit and stay healthy? Let us know in the comments! Download the MySwimPro app for workouts to help you lose weight and get faster! Try ELITE COACH free to 30 days! http://www.myswimpro.com/elite

  • Swimming is the best sport/exercise I’ve ever done and more motivating than running imo, but of course COVID had to ruin it for us.

  • GTN sets an even higher standard! My eyes usually glaze over when someone suggests swim sets, but now I understand what and why, except I need to go back for screenshots. Thanks!

  • No, lol try all my workouts and you will start to see it. I do total body workouts so you will work out your butt and legs every day!.

  • So im overweight massively but I’ve still had pretty good cardio. I’ve dropped 50 pounds of the 150 pound loss goal. My question is is there anything I can do to help prevent leg cramps. My right leg will lock up even though the rest of me is fine. I might be overworking a bit though. So I usually do 45 laps backstroke to warm up muscles. Then 15 laps free style. 15 laps breast stroke and 15 laps with side crawl is what I call it. Don’t know if that’s the name. Alternating aides on the turn.

  • Whoa dude! I was trying to be like you and now I have a pain imbalance in my butt! I guess that’s means I’m correcting muscle imbalance, right? It ain’t just my butt, either. I’ve got pain imbalances all over! Thank you for bringing us together. You are the Minister, the Minister of Pain. Seriously, tears in my eyes, thank you.

  • If u r doing catchup stroke as drills that’s fine but for the actual stroke it’s bad. Depending on glide will make your lower body sinks as evidence in the video.

  • All this to say!!! Eat healthy and exercises dayly!!! And you will lose weight!!! Everyone knows what to do to lose weight, the problem is nobody wants to do it!!!!! Or the majority out there won’t do it!!!

  • I have heard the dolphin kick is a good way to tone your core is this true? Also what is a good way to tone your inner and outer thighs? Amazing video by the way very inspiring!

  • I really enjoy ashtanga yoga, it’s my second choice if I can’t swim, I also like to take walks in the park. I’m going to miss the pool a lot, but this is also a good opportunity to explore other types of exercises, thanks MySwimPro for this transformation, thanks for keeping us motivated. NO POOL NO EXCUSES, let’s find the good side of this �� situation.

  • funny that isnt it, the thumb nail says janaury to august (8 months) but the guy in white suit says he did it in 12 months so which one is it?

  • I did this yesterday and only made it through 7 rounds. I’m mostly feeling it in my back today which I like because I love toned backs.

  • Like what you said about it getting boring going back and forth. I think thats why i feel bored so i should try a structured workout

  • Brilliant. I joined my local swimming pool recently and I am really enjoying it. I am 61 years and had stents fitted in 2014 needed to lose weight. I’m 220 pounds. But am doing 4 5 times a week, walking more and feel better..but only started 3 weeks ago. Great motivation material.

  • For all the people complaining about the length: there are time stamps for every topic covered in the description.
    For all the people commenting on his hair: holy fuck, give the guy a break he just lost 100 POUNDS!

  • الف شكرا

    Thanks so much for this Fares.

    I’m in Spain under Coronavirus shutdown where my pool is closed down and folks can’t be out in the street. I need workout tips to survive this confinement

  • I’m a masters swimmer, havin my first meet next week (The Norwegian Championship) �� but I did hardly loose weight and been swimming for 1 year and 9 months. Lost about 6 kg of fat in total, and I work out 7 times a week (2500 meters or more per practice) ��

  • Fair play to you.. to only do you look better but more importantly you must feel 10000% better in not just your physical self but also your mental self.. well done ����

  • My pool has a bunch of medicine balls. After each work out I must do a ‘burly juggle’. One set of juggle balls is 6 pound and about softball size. One set is 2 kilo. Another set is 6 pounds about volley ball size. Usually able to get 60 reps, r/l hand before I drop… I practice Tai Chi as well.

  • Started doing an hour of swimming every day about 4 weeks ago and have lost around 8kgs.. changed my diet as well of course.. starting weights and calisthenics once my injuries heal. Can definitely vouch for a good swim so good for legs and upper body, shoulders and arms.. makes you very strong and doesn’t screw your joints if you hate running. Great for breathing and your heart.. haven’t slept so well in years. Dive in!

  • I’m swimming every other day and have been for the last month. I’m up to a half mile and slowly increasing two laps a day. I should be to a mile in another month. I’ll stay at that. I have about 30lbs to lose and really am hoping the lap swimming can tone me up as well.

  • Been kind of depressed forcing myself to do workouts I hate since I can’t swim, thank you, event though this is not the same as being in the water, it will keep my muscles strong for when I am able to return to the pool

  • so you just do 100% swimming and you get that shape? did you include out of the water exercise like Gym or others? or just purely swimming?

  • My pool is closed. I can’t train for two meets I was planning to enter. I can’t teach my swim classes either. I miss my ymca pool so badly.

  • What is the best product or brand to increase your size when erections with natural ways? I read a lot of good opinions on the internet about how exactly Penlargerem System will help you get permanent enlargement by using healthy ways. Has anybody tried using this popular natural male enhancement?

  • The interviewer seems low key agitated. He def should cut back on the coffee. He asks questions of the guy and interrupts him over and over. The bald guy isn’t comfortable already, and the interviewer makes him feel even more anxious.

  • Does Penlargerem System really help to get more intense erections with healthy ways? We’ve read many good things about this popular male enhancement.

  • this is such a long wandering pointless psychobabble of a video! what is going on guys? the guy on the left is trying to keep conversation on point while the guy who lost weight is just completely distracted

  • great vid as always. whats up with the lighting in this video? funny thing though, is that the lighting brought out a lot of your muscle definition! didn’t know you were that ripped, lls

  • I have a hundred pounds / 60 kilos to loose and would like to use swimming to achieve it. I can swim 1.5. kg, but my swimming ( breaststroke and freestyle) techniques are inefficient and not good. Plan to take a few private lessons to improve, bought a buoy/ kick board to isolate and work on kicks and pulls. Any other advice for obese “false” beginners. I’ m first hoping to go regularly 2 times a week ( on top of my 1 x Zumba) and then maybe increase to 3 and then 4 times weekly.

  • Wait… Just for kicks I got on the floor and tried it…..my hamstrings cramped up ungodly in under a minute (I should have warmed up) I remember thinking how funny it was seeing my mom doing these when I was a kid. Harder than they look.

  • I see overweight people putting in the work at the pool i lifeguard. It honestly motivated me to swim on a daily basis, 6 times a week. I’m training to one day be a beach lifeguard.

  • I, fortunately, have a well-equiped home-gym and will try to switch up pieces of equipment to keep it fresh, but the TRX is my go-to equipment, simply because it’s core all day on those straps.

  • I read lots of superb opinions on the net about how exactly Penlargerem System will help you increase your size when erections by using natural ways. Has anyone tried this popular male enhancement?

  • Hi there, i am swimming 1200 meters in the sea 5× a week and it took for me 40 miniutes how to swim faster to make it 30 miniutes?

  • 1.Pull Ups,
    2.Push Ups,
    4. No name mentioned Something to do with flip turns
    5.Flutter kicks

    PS. How often should you do these workouts?

  • Nice video. Thanks.
    I can’t do the planks properly. Should I hold my breath for a few seconds or keep breathing while maintaining the body position?

  • Try swimming 11,000 yards in one day = 2500 cals. #highschool
    I would recommend to anyone that is serious about it to get an Apple Watch they are the best swimming trackers out there

  • Very poor video, non-specific for stroke, distance. No mention or reps, sets, duration. Also hardly the 5 best exercises, for example the fastest part of swimming is the dive in and push off the wall, so where was the exercise for increasing leg power for this aspect. Think again guys if you want to be calling these the best 5 exercises!!1

  • Great testimony that I have been dealing with, loss of sleep and a lot of stress. I was forced to retire, to do financial business, to the loss of a loved one; Consequently, dealing with my brother’s pain. If it were not for good supplements and for the red tea to change my diet, I know I would be in a much worse shape… All this and my faith. I recommend it https://bit.ly/2tSMWBX

  • i try this wonderful effect.disc problem try this…blood circulation…thank u..video…awesome..i subscribe ur channel…bell botton press

  • Genuinely love the video! Abs are already starting to show actually lol. But what is that music? I must know! Like its brock. But the specific name?

  • Anyone know what is Penlargerem System about? I hear most people increase their size when erections with this popular natural male enhancement.

  • I’m about to start tomorrow! I’m 270 right now which sucks but I love swimming so much. I was supposed to start sooner but I have to get over the whole “judgement” things like people staring. Thanks for this.

  • Great that’s a good sign. Could you not have just kicked your arms or legs like I did? I gave out too haha but I kept pushing with the variations.

  • The most weight (about 6 kilos) I’ve ever lost in a quick amount of time (about 10 day’s) was swimming at the beach, without a doubt the best exercise I’ve done, using your entire body against the current will shred that fat like a hot knife through butter, stay consistent and everything will workout, only down side is petrol/gas prices getting to the beach.��

  • Thanks for this Fares. For me, as a pool back-up, weights are the most convenient. Along with an Air Walker for cardio.
    Do you have any info on these “swimming apparatus”? I see they’re quite expensive. I wuz thinking about making one using a body length plank, affixed to a long pipe underneath (with stops) for tilting or rotation, and some springs or straps mounted forward, to simulate the catch and pulls. Hope you understand. Thanks again.

  • Hey there, i have a question. In speed session 16x25m with 4th fast and 15 sec recovery means: swim 100m(last 25m fast) and then wait 15 sec and do 4 it for four times? Am i wrong?

  • Thank you so much for this video! The way you summerize what to focus on while lap swimming is the easiest way I’ve ever come across. Brilliant..

  • Problem is this isnt realistic for a human being. Nobody is going to meal prep for 40 years. Eating in moderation and when your hungry will in itself take weight off your body as long as you have no medical conditions that prevent this. The pool exercise is great and 3x a week will take off 50 plus lbs after a year

  • I started swimming again but not having a long pool in my backyard makes working on my distance tough. I still do an hours worth of swimming tho.

  • …way to go ��but to me it harded not to snack, and when it comes to snacking you cannot meal prep for that and also I was looking at the picture for meal prep the portion size for rice is really small, and the portion size is small so am thinking it easy to get hungry fast.( it takes a lot of determination!

  • I love running, but running doesn’t love me!
    Our pool is closed for the foreseeable future. So see you Sunday, looking forward to the workout and thanks for helping us stay fit!

  • haha that made my day. Well you saw I gave out too.. and just kicked my legs you have to try that too! I’m glad you tried though. You are a testimony that my workouts arent just for women right:)

  • My local pool is closed. I miss swimming laps but I’ve been enjoying yoga and Pilates at home, and hiking on some of the easy trails.

  • Since getting back to swimming in the last 2 1/2. Months I have made a vast improvement by averaging 3-4 times a week.Now havnt had access to the pool for 1 week. Already concerned about losing my mojo. I like compound & body weight workouts and need to get back to it now until the pool opens again.

  • It will help men too! lol You won’t get anything round or plump… it will just make you stronger. The average person is weak at this exercise.

  • Do anybody know about Penlargerem System? Does it really work? I hear many individuals increase their size when erections with this popular natural male enhancement.

  • This is really great, but I think he would have benefited more if he would have incorporated 3-4 days of weight lifting a week into his weekly routine.

  • Hey @Global Triathlon Network any ides how to “translate” your speed session proposal into 50 m pool (you are proposing only for 25 m runs)?

  • Lol swim cap? Of course he doesn’t wear one, why would you ask him that? But thanks for the video, it’s nice to see fitness success from swimming.

  • Gym is closed, too…..working out with runs outside and in my garage with my dumbell, barbell, resistance bands. Les Mills On Demand is a good website for lifting, yoga, core workouts. Novice swimmer here just starting to get my rhythm, breathing and stroke correct -will likely have to go to starting point to get back to swimming better. Thanks for your vids. I found some imitation TRX straps at ALDI and noticed Walmart had some cheaper ones plan using them tomorrow on an outdoor tree at the park. THanks for the reminder.

  • Thanks man. I’ve got the symptoms of u know what and my pool is closed. Exams (GCSE) have been cancelled bu atleast theres still youtube and some good old land work.
