Swimming is known for being a full body excersize, this is very true. However, the physics of the sport is what matters here. The forces acting on a swimmer include mg down, thrust in the direction the swimmer is headed, drag in the opposite, and the buyonce, of the swimmer up. The thrust is from both arms and legs combined. While drag is caused by your whole body attempting to move through the water.
