swimming & wieghts

Do you think its a good idea for me to have a weights session - usually lasts bout an hour - and its only light weights and then go swimming afterwards with only a half hour break or so inbetween?

    i normally always go swimming straight after a workout, even if its a heavy 1 and runs past an hr. I have a MR at the gym, then 20mins later go for swim. Feels it stretchs and relaxing muscle, just like a warm down. Plus you get all the nice ladies looking at you as you strut into the pool lol

    This is good stuff! my gyms only a tiny $ht one, so no pool in the gym, but the only nights my local pool opens to adults only is when im trianing - dont fancy swimming with a load o kids!

    Tis a good point made tho - id like to have a good gander and a few 'strutting' blokies !

    I used to be a keen swimmer, i could go for hours, then i took up lifting and i literally cannot go one length without being completely shattered. Its not because im unift, i still run a lot, my muscles just cant take what i suppose you could call "ultra high reps" in water. Also i dont float anymore which sucks. I wish that when i started lifting i combined it with my swimming so yes, id say its a very good idea to do both, watch out for overtraining though.
