  • I was told that you can burn approximately 450 calories

    in an hour, but only if you are swimming as if in a practice. That

    means you don't stop very often to relax. You have to

    keep the pace going. Doing something like a butterfly stoke

    (which requires a lot of effort) solidly for one hour might burn

    500-700 depending on your weight.

  • I'm not sure if this is correct but I heard that if you can

    manage to build up your pace and get to the stage where you can

    swim one whole mile in 33 minutes it will burn approximately

    425 calories. I'm joining my school swim team next


  • The number of calories burned swimming depends on how fast you

    are swimming, what swimming stroke you use, the amount of effort

    required from you, how far you swim, and how often you rest. Please

    feel free to ask the question again and include more detail.
