Exercise Comments

i use a set of swim fins to add extra resistance for my legs and abs. Especially doing the butterfly kick tones the abs.

This is not a common swim routine. I am using a supplement to my other cardio as I get back into swimming after years of missing the pool...and not being a good swimmer at that.
