i love swimming. I never competed but I am a great swimmer. I really do try to maintain my form though. I have a small pool, but I found doing laps continuously (without stopping) basically bouncing off one wall to the other really gets my heart rate up. I wear a heart rate monitor when i swim. My abdomen really tones up when I swim too. probably because I do alot with my torso, flipping over, trying to keep my body down at the bottom, and I also find myself trying to keep my balance more in the water when i play.--so it is like a giant bosu ball in a way. Also you have to use your core to keep your body in alignment. I love getting in and playing "dive for things" with my son as well.
