Swim muscles

Post by Craig » Mon Feb 06, 2006 10:28 am

I am 57 and have a arthritic knee. I swim 2 - 3 miles a week. I swim breast stroke for 75% and crawl and back stroke for the rest. With the crawl I use support to keep my back legs boyant. I stopped using a kick board because of knee pain. My questions are 1) what muscles are not in use w/ this swimming regimen and 2) exercises should I do to compensate for the muscles I am not using while swimming?

It seems to me Jack Lalanne has videos about water excercises. I would check those out if I were you. That would probably be the best for your situation.
