Turn a lazy summer day in the pool into a calorie-burning, high-intensity workout! Besides providing resistance and increasing endurance, the water will help support much of your weight, which minimizes stress on the body and joints. Exercising in the pool will also help increase balance and joint range of motion, which is particularly beneficial for women who spend a great deal of time on their feet as well as new moms who are looking to get their body back in shape in a safe and healthy manner. Here’s a great routine for the next time you take a dip.
How it works: Do each exercise for 60 seconds in a pool so that the water is at waist-level.
