    Are these full chest to floor pushups? Pretty great if so.

    Swimming, man I wish. I don't think I could swim 300m anymore. When I was a kid I could swim all day, now I just fucking sink. I wonder if adult lessons would help?

    Yes. For the first month I took my hands off the ground to train myself to get all the way down.

    That's awesome, I find the swimming even more awesome. I can't believe my lack of buoyancy, I kind of want to try training in it and learn swimming all over again.

    Yes absolutely. I took some last year because I fucking sucked at swimming.

    I can even tread water now with just my hands. I can also flutter kick to tread water (which is way easier than egg beater).

    Agree. Breast is sooo much easier than free. I used to swim lots back in the University days (over a decade ago) and now I would go maybe once a quarter on a good day. Even with that, I can probably do breast non-stop for 30+ laps, whereas freestyle I definitly have take a break every 8-10 laps. Freestyle is also alot quicker though...
