Swimming Pool Exercises Bryan, College Station, Brazos Valley & Surrounding Areas
Summer is quickly approaching and with it comes a deep desire to look good in your swimsuit. Whether you have a few pounds to shed or you simply would like to firm a few areas, there is a great workout machine in your yard that you might have overlooked- the swimming pool! If you enjoy swimming and you are looking to achieve a more healthy physique, then jump into the water and start training. These five simple swimming pool exercises will whip you into shape for the season.
1. Noodle Sit
Most pool owners have a few foam noodles lying around, but who knew that they were good for a workout? Because this toy is buoyant, you will have to utilize several key muscle groups in order to sit on the noodle. Try sitting on the noodle and staying there for 30 seconds at a time, and your core will thank you later.
2. Leg Bends
Place the noodle around your back and lace your arms over the noodle. Now, begin to raise your legs to your chest and hold them for five seconds, then release and point your toes towards the bottom of the pool. Try doing 15 reps to tone your abs as well as your thighs.
Place the noodle under your stomach. Then, hold the pool ladder and extend your legs so that you are floating in a plank position. While holding the ladder, you will need to drop your legs, together, to form a 90 degree angle. This will target your hips, thighs, and buttocks.
4. Water Crunch
Using the noodle again, place the noodle under your legs, around your knees. Begin the process of sitting up, bringing your hands towards your knees. Try 20 repetitions at a time and your abs will be screaming.
5. Squat Twists
Standing in chest deep water with your legs shoulder width apart, hold the noodle directly in front of you. Squat down, forming a 90 degree angle with your legs, and push the noodle as far down as possible. When coming back up, try twisting to either the left or the right to target your oblique muscles.
