In the shallow area step forward with one leg. Bend your front knee all the way until your shoulders are under the water. Lean your torso slightly forward. Hold the dumbbells on the side, parallel to the bottom of the pool, with both elbows bent 90 degrees.
Push both aqua dumbbells forward, across your chest, until you extend both your arms together. Then pull as you bend your elbows to return back to the starting position. Feel the resistance in both directions; as you push and as you pull. You can also perfom this exercise with alternating arms, as shown in the second image.
Inhale as you pull. Exhale as you push.
Chest and Upper Back. Feel your back muscles as you pull and your chest muscles as you push.
