Hi! I am a 14 year old swimmer and for the past 1-2 years I’ve been trying to become fitter. To explain more, my journey first started when I wad chubby 12 year old me. I started running but no dieting and after a solid while I changed schools. I was 13 and I had started doing some swimming, only 2 times a week. I am now 14 and have been swimming 7 times a week(~14k/week+/- Also I swim Monday,tuesday 2x, Wednesday, Thursday 2x, and friday) and I am trying to lose fat and become stronger. I have only been swimming 7/week for 3 weeks now and I can’t see results… Yes, I know I might be sounding impatient but I really need to know.
(Also, just to add a little more context I’d like to note 2 things: I already have quite some muscle, I have almost visible Abs without flexing. I am one of the most athletic people in my grade.)
Do I have to swim/ start working out more? Before I was swimming this much I used to do:
Monday - 30-45 min ab workout on yt
Tuesday - 1hour swimming after school
Wednesday - 30-45(Either ab or back and bicep workout) on yt
Thursday- 1 hour Swimming after school
Compared to what I do know
Monday - Swimming for an hour in the morning(Around 2k)
Tuesday - Morning swimming 1 hour (Around 2k), Afterschool swimming 1 hour(Around 2k)
Wednesday - Swimming for an hour in the morning(Around 2k)
Thursday - Swimming for an hour in the morning(Around 2k), Afterschool swimming 1 hour(Around 2k)
Friday - Morning swimming 1 hour (Around 2k)
Breakfast - 2-3 small pieces of dark bread/toast with homemade peanut butter.
After morning swim - Yoghurt/fruit smoothie and a fruit
Lunch - Green salad with some grilled chicken
After Afternoon swimming - Yoghurt/fruit smoothie and a dark bread with: avocado, tomato and a slice of ham.
Dinner - Can range anywhere from lean grilled/oven baked meat, oven baked fish, sandwich or can be anything else.
I was thinking of adding in some ab/bicep/back workouts after school on the days i have morning swimming and how should i change my diet? Let me know what you think
P.S I am around 165cm(5.4feet) and I weigh around 52.6kg(115lbs)
