Did you know you can get an awesome workout in the pool without swimming laps (or breaking a sweat)? Water’s high density level provides 12 to 15 times more resistance than air, which makes it a great environment for building lean muscles. Plus, a variety of aquatic fitness equipment, including hand buoys, water dumbbells, and ankles weights, enhances resistance for a more challenging workout.
Get in the pool and perform these 10 water exercises from HYDRO-FIT, INC., to tone your abs, arms, back, and legs, and blast major calories!
