It’s wonderful to have a pool to exercise in every day, right? But does the thought of another hour of laps…
back and forth, back and forth… start to get a little dull?
Here are some fun ways to stay fit in your pool… as you take a little break from the laps.
Tread water while you’re chatting with your friends. (10 minutes burns 45 calories!)
Try some tricep dips on the stairs or the edge of the pool.
Do leg lifts and kicks using the water’s resistance.
Play a few rounds of Marco Polo or water volleyball. (Amazing how long we kept those games up as kids!)
Get a kickboard and flutter kick your laps—feel your glutes burn!
Stay in the shallow end and jog back and forth–the water resistance makes your legs work really hard.
Practice your diving. Tone your arms every time you lift yourself out of the pool.
