When I lift weights or do resistance training, I usually spend some time on the treadmill after I'm done so I can get some cardio into my routine. I want to change things up and maybe swim after doing my weight routine. Is this a good idea? Has anyone done this? I'm mostly concerned because the body temperature is high after a good workout so jumping into a pool may shock the body and be harmful. The pool at my gym is heated but the temperature is still cooler than the body. I was thinking of doing this because I like swimming more than the treadmill but realized the potential danger. What are you thoughts on this? Thanks for any feedback!
