Why Exercise in Water?
Unlike regular workout routines, which can be high-impact and have a higher risk of injury, exercising in water is low-intensity and easy on the joints. You can swim, do aerobics, or practice physical therapy from the comfort of your own home, and get a great all-over body work out. The added resistance of water and the swim jets also means that you’ll burn more calories, strengthen your body and benefit from improved flexibility.
Now, try these all season pool exercised on for size:
This is a great warm-up exercise! At a similar pace to a jog, try standing upright and lifting one leg after the other, while bringing your knees up as high as possible. Start slow, and increase the pace to a quick jog if you feel comfortable.
Did you know that walking or jogging in reverse engages more muscles than going forward? Now you know, you’ll want to repeat the steps as above, except this time you will have your back to the jets. Keep the current low, increasing the intensity as required.
Simulate the experience of riding a bicycle, while holding onto the edge of your all season pool. Bring your legs up just under the surface of the water and pedal for one to two minutes, or until you really feel the burn.
Your all season pool is perfect for swimming laps. Laps are great for improving your cardio, and building full-body strength. an all season pool provides an extra benefit because of the jets. This added current will make your workout even more impactful. Start slow and build your endurance gradually.
Stretching and Breathing
After your workout is complete, try stretching to side-step stiff and sore muscles. Follow up with breathing exercises to help you relax and reduce stress. You’ll also feel the tension in your muscles diminish.
So there you have it: five easy all season pool exercises that will make you look and feel great! Be sure to stay hydrated, and consult with your doctor if you have concerns about your ability in attempting any of these exercises.
