Noodle is one of my favorite aqua exercising tools due to its flexibility and shape. Taking advantage of noodle's flexibility is perfectly displayed in this shallow-end exercise.
This exercise mainly targets your upper body muscles. If you feel pain in your hands while performing this exercise - especially if for extended period of time - continue with smaller movements, or have a break.
Stand in the shallow-end with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the noodle with both hands - about shoulder width grip - and lean your torso slightly forward. Make sure you don't put your weight on the noodle.
Bend the noodle as you push and extend both your arms, alternately, as deep as you can. Keep your back and shoulders still, in the same position, and only engage your arms.
Use your outer chest and triceps muscles to bend the noodle.
Tip: Start slow and gradually increase the speed of your movement as you get more comfortable with the exercise.
