Fit,

How do I swim? I mean, is there a 'good' technique to get some full body cardio/ conditioning in? I want to start swimming instead of spinning so much on my cardio days.

I don't know, I can't really swim, I just figured out how not to drown. Obviously way too embarrassed to do anything about it now. I will just avoid situations that require that skill until I am dead.

Depends. Are you black? If so good luck, black people can't swim.

An attempt at a serious answer:

You won't get anywhere without swimming lessons.

Swimming is extremely technical and it will take you quite some time to get the hang of it. It's worth it, though.

Wait what is this actually a thing? Do amerikeks not know how to swim? Wow, I'm a kek Swede but atleast both Ahmed and Johan learn to swim before their 12.

TECHNIQUE

If you perfect your technique, you are already a very fast swimmer
Look up how to do it properly and practice (or take lessons)

This fucking guy, you wouldn't know what to stroke if you ever got the chance to be within touching distance of a breast

Also OP swimming is like any exercise, you have to do it a lot to get good at it. But it's different in that you just can't pick up a book and read about swimming and technique for several minutes before hopping in the pool. You gotta spend HUGE amounts of time going back and forth until your technique and endurance until you're good at it.

living in australia is the best. they force you to learn to swim because its an island so if you're not careful you might fall off one day and you dont want to drown

Shit this brings me back to my childhood days when I took swimming lessons.
