  • Can swimming be the "move frequently at a slow pace" component?

    Question in the thread title... I'm not a keen walker - never have been. Just never has appealed. But swimmer.. love it!

    Can swimming be the major component of the move frequently, or is the PB principally "walkers rule"?

    PBF talks about "walking, hiking, cycling, easy cardio". Is swimming in, or out?

    swimming is totally fine, just make sure you're not keeping your heartrate up too high for too long a time

      Sounds like fun....It is a good idea to get some walking in so you have some weight bearing exercise.
      Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

      Don't forget to play!

        Exactly that - I personally think walking is the best foundation of fitness - it's how we get arround from going for a wee to getting up to make a coffee, so I think it's fundamental, but if you don't like it then swim, it's all good.
