Whether you’re in search of a low-intensity exercise routine or just want to get a workout in while enjoying the sunny weather, these exercises are a great way to tone your entire body and stay cool this summer.
Face a side of the pool and position your hands on the wall slightly wider than your shoulders. Bend your arms and lean in toward the wall, then push back out without locking your elbows.
Stand in the pool (hold onto the side if you like) and lift one leg out to the side, then back down and across your other foot, then down. Switch legs and perform the exercise on the other leg.
Holding your arms down at your sides, open your palms and squeeze your fingers together. Then bend the elbows and curl your forearms up so that your hands press up toward your shoulders. Return your arms down to your sides and repeat.
Stand up straight and hug both elbows in toward your sides. Bend your elbows at 90° so that your hands are out in front of you and your forearms are parallel with the bottom of the pool. Press your arms up and back through the water to straighten your arms behind you, squeezing your triceps. Return to bent elbows and repeat.
Stand near a pool wall for support, if needed, and take a big lunge step in a forward direction. Do not let the knee in front of you advance past your toes. Return to the starting position and repeat with the other leg.
