Thanks for the response.
Swimming though is cardio and resistance – so strength. Just do a couple of laps with hand-paddles and feel the burn – and watch the muscle definition.
I do like your idea of measuring by ability to speak: fast = no, moderate = yes, slow = readily but this would obviously have to do with your condition. For example, a smoker who swims one lap in two minutes would equal a swimmer who swims the same in ten seconds.
It seems that there should be some point of reference: I swim a mile in 45 minutes so a lap (25 yards) every 40 seconds. Is fast a lap/30s?
What is the sites definition? what do they mean. It's really vague.
PS – Like your speed quote.

Does anyone have any idea what the definition of "fast," "moderate" and "slow" swimming is - or for that matter, "moderate" weights?

I do 45 minutes of weights in the morning followed by 45 minutes of lap swimming. For weights, which is primarily cables/dumbells (no barbells), I am usually panting at about 30 minutes as I do opposing sets (so 12/10/8 pull-ups/push-ups, etc). Swimming I am at a mile (66 laps) in 45 minutes.

So what are the definitions and if you have them, what is your source?

Do you weight in before and after you exercise?
While you are correct re the best time to weigh in, your trainer is wrong. Inflammation does not cause weight gain. Typically, you will weigh less after a strenuous workout simply from sweating aka water loss.

You should lose weight - mostly water - so once you quench your thirst, you will gain most of it back.

It only makes sense. A gallon of water weighs eight pounds so every 16oz you drink = 1 lb.

Started weights so hoping this is more lean weight gain. However, blue cheese dressing is a killer.
