    I have started to take my gymming seriously and decided to do HIIT.
    I have read that Spinning is the best option to incorporate HIIT in your daily routine.

    I am currently swimming 10 laps 7 days a week and have a goal in mind to lose 5-8kgs by November.
    I don't want to buff up, just lose weight and tone the muscles and HIIT seems to be perfect way to do this.

    The body type I am aiming for:

    You want limbs that are too long, an over-developed back, and hardly any chest? Why?

    I knew you would comment. icon_biggrin.gif

    I am working with what I think will fit within my current body build and what I want from my body i.e. a swimmers build.
    I am not looking anything more muscular than that.

    Well, don't eat, and swim, and, you'll take on a "swimmer's" build. It's really pretty simple, and something that you should be able to figure out on your own.

    Mike Phelps is the "ultimate" swimmer build.... he's not very muscular, he's lanky, reasonably lean, but generally goofy looking. Understand, the only way you end up looking like that is if you're in the pool several hours a day with a proper diet. It'll take a couple years to develop "the build", but given the end result, I can't say it's worth the effort because the amount of work required to achieve that look is ridiculously high.

    I looked just like Phelps after about two years in my high school swim team, and to be honest, every one of us on the swim team who were any good looked pretty damn goofy.

    Gymnasts are just a smaller version of bodybuilders with all components of fitness (strength, cardio, and flexibility), as well as a balanced physique.
