Super Water Workout

Posted by in News

white-tiger-swimmingI’ve been swimming for about a month now and in addition to doing laps, I also do other exercises using the water’s resistance (kicks, lunges, bicycles). I always get the strangest looks and I was starting to think that I was the only one to do more than just laps in the pool. This article, Workout in the Water, from the LA Times provides some fantastic ideas about how you can add exercises to your water workout to really get the maximum benefit. Also, it is easier on your joints to do strength training underwater, so if you have any aches or pains, this might be a great way for you to begin recovering and regaining some muscle mass. It might be a little selfish, but I’m hoping you’ll start doing some of these so that I’m not the only one looking like a dork in the pool…as if the swim cap wasn’t bad enough!
