Swimming pool joy

Posted , 3 users are following.

Just want to recommend doing exercises in a swimming pool. It's amazing to be able to do them and so much easier than on land! Very encouraging and a bit of a thrill! My physio recommended using ankle floats to increase resistance and that works the leg very well. Also I understand that working the muscles in water works them in a particularly all over type of way, which cannot be achieved out of water due to gravity! I started doing about forty minutes of exercises and 20 mins of the crawl a few weeks back and it really is the highlight of my week. Completely exhausted for the rest of the day but so worth it.
