    Swimming after weight lifting - not a good idea?

    Hi.

    I was told at the gym the other day that going swimming after lifting weights will waste all the work I have just done. ie. I won't get any bigger becuse the blood has been pumped to different parts of my body when swimming.


    Is this true? The guy who told me was just another gym go'er like myself so I don't want to take JUST his word for it.


    Any advice appreciated.

    I don't believe that's true as long as you aren't trying to be an olympian and stick with some low intesity you are fine. Just don't do any cardio before you lift.

    Cardio is fine after a workout. You just have to keep the time around 30 min and PWO nutrition in check.
