I just joined my local YMCA because they have a small indoor pool. I am getting back into a new exercise program and I would like to incorporate some swimming.
I am confident in the water (love the ocean) but my specific strokes are not technical at all (crawl is my weakness). I was taught the strokes when I was a kid, but that was a long long time ago
I I suppose I could take some lessons, but I really just want to get started. Is wading through the laps going to be beneficial? Er...I guess I don't mean "wading", I mean more like kicking my legs and pushing the water back with my arms? I can also do the sidestroke and backstroke with some more confidence in my form.
Does anyone have experience with getting back into swimming? I plan to use the treadmill and eliptical machines as well, but really feel that changing things up will give me a more well rounded program.
