Can swimming increase your VO2 max more than biking or running? So, if you swam vs. biked or ran - would you end up with a higher VO2 max - we would assume here that time and intensity would be similiar. My question arises because of the hypoxic attributes of swimming in comparison to other sports.

this is not proven based on solid evidenve. however, me an avid triathlete (primarily running and cycling) swimming is my weaker link. a formula states that to have the same amount of training the following figures come out to be the same. .5 mile swim 3 mile run 5 mile road bike i also found this interesting, it talked about how if you train avidly by swimming and you are a runner, you will become a very good swimmer however, your vo2 max will still lack if you are a runner. this means if you swim constantly for cross training, it wont help you that much if you are a runner. http://home.hia.no/~stephens/vo2sptst.htm
