Swimming is an excellent way to exercise that is easy on the muscles and joints, as well as being great fun! A swim spa is an ideal way to get your thirty minutes of exercise each day, without having to waste precious time travelling to and from the gym. Aquasun stock a great range of endless pools so that you can work out in the comfort of your own home. So, what exactly can you do with a swim spa?
Best Swimming Work Outs
1. Work out your core
To achieve toned abs and a stronger core, you don’t have to resort to weights or Pilates. Instead, take a dip into your pool and move your body against the current in the pool. Why not try holding onto the side of the swim spa, and do crunches or pikes to increase your core strength? You can also try scissor or ‘flutter’ kicks at the side of your pool with or without the aid of a floating device.
2. Can I run in water?
Yes! A great feature of most of the swim spas that we stock is that they create a current that you can swim, or even run against. Jogging or running notoriously strains joints, so doing the same exercise in water will help ease any pressure or stress that you’d usually endure running on land.
3. Resistance training in the pool
You don’t need a full gym set to get an effective at-home workout when you have a swim spa. You can reach your weight training goals in the pool, by working against the current. Naturally, the stronger the current the more the resistance, but ensure you only work as hard as you’re comfortable with!
4. Pool Noodle exercise
After a swim spa, a pool noodle might be the second most important thing to purchase when it comes to home exercising. There are many ways you can use the noodle to help create an effective workout, including resistance, aerobics, planking and crunches.
Of course, swimming is one of the top exercises you can do in your swim spa! Simply paddle against the current in a range of different strokes and find a rhythm that works for you. After a hard work out, the pool becomes a great place to relax and enjoy the weightless feeling for a while.
