Will swimming slim your hips and make your shoulders big?

While making your ass flat? Here I said it, we all know this is why you are here - there's a myth that swimmer guys look sexy, while swimmer ladies look like dudes. I want to stop here and split this myth into two parts so you can choose where you at on this...

  1. Swimmers who have been swimming since childhood and do it professionally
  2. Swimmers who don't do it professionally.

If you are here reading this article and you are in category 1 - you are a professional swimmer (retired or not)... Well your hips, shoulders and other body parts look like they look. You probably have a tough muscular body type and swim results to show for it.

Now if you are a swimmer that doesn't swim professionally or someone that simply consider to take up swimming as a way to get fit... You are in luck! Forget big shoulders, flat butts and other myths that only apply if you are a professional that spent more than a decade in water.
