i swim for my cardio (mostly breaststroke) and for strength training i do some of the exercise recommended for a start by sparkpeople - back extensions, crunches with twist, wall pushups (the modified pushups recommended by SP cause a problem with my knees), leg curls and squats.
what do you all do for strength training?
are there exercises that support/complement the swimming workout? i guess it makes more sense to use complementary exercise instead of training the muscles i train by swimming anyway?
advice would be nice, i'm really quite ignorant about fitness matters ...
