You're back does get a good workout while swimming, just take a look at any swimmers back! They're super wide. But your chest!? Being a lifeguard for years and growing up in and around swimming along with many other high level swimmers, i can tell you, i've never heard of chest pump while swimming ahaaa.
I've got a friend who's swam since he could walk, he's one of the best in Britain for his age, and his back is unbelievable, i sat behind him in a lecture and his back was hanging over the sides of the chair haaa. This is without serious gym work!
