Enter the total swimming time (min) and select your swimming intensity. The calculator will evaluate the Swimming Weight Loss. 

Swimming Weight Loss Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate Swimming Weight Loss.

SWL = ST / 60 * I * 490 / 3,500

Variables:

  • SWL is the Swimming Weight Loss (pounds of weight loss)
  • ST is the total swimming time (min) 
  • I is your swimming intensity 

How to Calculate Swimming Weight Loss?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Swimming Weight Loss.


  1. First, determine the total swimming time (min). 
  2. Next, determine your swimming intensity. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = SWL = ST / 60 * I * 490 / 3,500.
  4. Finally, calculate the Swimming Weight Loss.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total swimming time (min) = 30

your swimming intensity = 1.5

SWL = ST / 60 * I * 490 / 3,500 = ?
