Get a workout in the pool with these 10 exercises

Summer is just around the corner, and that means it’s nearly time to hit the swimming pool. While you’re cooling off and splashing with the kids, why not take advantage of the water for a workout?

Exercising in the pool doesn’t mean you have to swim laps or join a water aerobics class. Many of the exercises you do on land can be done in the water, with the added benefit of more resistance from the water. A water workout also reduces the impact of certain exercises, making it an ideal workout for anyone with arthritis or joint pain.
