Exercising in the Pool

Swimming builds strength and cardio abilities simultaneously. Though it's a low-impact workout, swimming produces high-power results. The problem is I don't know how to swim so I utilize the time while accompanying my youngest son by exercising in the pool. I jog in place, tick-tock hop, jump from side to side and squat jump.

Even the simplest pool exercise—walking forward and backward in waist-high water—improves your balance, trains the core muscles of your abdomen, increases your flexibility and boosts cardiovascular fitness.You'll also burn calories, reduce fat and lose weight at the same rate as working out on land.
