    Underwater exercises

    Anybody with experience in underwater exercises? I am kind of skeptical since whales are fat but it would be nice to try something new. Please don´t suggest drowning, boiling water or a gym in a submarine. Thanks

    That sounds super practical!

    On second thought... you may be on to something here...

    We could create gyms based underwater...

    The profit would come from renting out the scuba gear needed to get to the underwater gym...

    This is genious...

    Hmm....

    Since whales are fat...
    "in the howling bleeding nights, the dogs plunge into the Volga and swim desperately to gain the other bank. The nights of Stalingrad are a terror for them. Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones cannot bear it for long; only men endure."

    In water, you are doing only the postive part of the lift and therefore are doing no negatives.

    That is why you can get upside down in the water. You do half of the movement, get upside down and finish.

    ther would be some negative but it would be greatly reduced, the positives would be harder

    Maybe not underwater gym but liquid gym. As you get strong you move through liquids of different densities. Newbies start in water, then something in a consistency of a pap, finally melted metal or lava.

    A good option would be a non-newtonian liquid, so the hard you push the harder it gets. You can actually walk above those liquids, just like Jesus.

    Well, the problem with mercury is that you can't really touch it.... bad things happen... For the underwater gym, you could have air filled toys to train the negative portion and weights to train the positive portion!

    Honestly though, training IN the water is great for you. However, you don't need weights. If you swim enough, you will gain strength. I have a cousin who is an extremely good swimmer. When he trains, he sometimes does 5,000 laps a day. Yes, five thousand. He does 1,000 laps, then trains with weights (in a gym); another thousand, trains with weights; etc., until he reaches 5,000 laps. After that, I'm sure you'd get a good enough workout, even without the gym training. However, that is basically for endurance; I'm not sure how much actual strength you'd gain once you're used to the movements. I'm sure you could find a way to strength train in the water though. Maybe find some sort of waterproof weight vest to wear while swimming (?), even though that might be dangerous.

    I've read that baseball players practice swinging bats in a pool. Once summer comes around I will try putting my bench in the pool.

    No, you were right. Eating mercury will make you ripped like Ahnold. Feel the burn (screams in pain)!

    First comic books knowledge, now this.
    Nothing like google to give that useless knowledge you don´t know. Come on cats, do you even know how to spell endometriosis? do you? do you? do you?

    Swim while dragging a buoy behind you kind of like running with a parachute.

    Whales have blubber because they don't have wetsuits in their size to keep them warm when they dive down into the depths, unless you mean the landwhales I call fat people.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
