hello all! I have a question for ya ...
I'm a swim instructor/ lifeguard so that means I'm in the water constantly moving for 4 hours a day and out on deck walking around for about 3 ... inbetween classes I'm swimming laps and during classes I'm walking/running/treading in the water
so here's the question ... do you think it's necessary for me to do additional workouts on the weekends when I don't teach classes and am only guarding? or am I burning enough during the week that I should give my body a break? :dizzy: thanks so much!

I would suggest that you need to do additional workouts to get in a different type of work out, like some strength training or something. Your body can get too used to doing just one form of exercise and it won't work as efficiently.

thanks for the advice almostheaven ... I use my weights and my pilates ball for some basic crunches and stretches so I guess that I'm getting some toning in too .. thanks :)
