It may feel easy at first, but treading water for a longer time could get challenging. It is a simple yet effective exercise that involves all major muscle groups.
In this exercise, you will experience treading water without using floats. You will be moving your arms and legs to keep your body afloat.
In the deep-end, keep an upright position with your hands by your side and your back straight.
Alternate your legs and arms in a semi-circular motion. Push the water downwards with your hands and feet to keep your body afloat. This is cardio workout so try to perform for at least 10 minutes.
Focus on regular breathing throughout this workout. Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
Engage your core and use your leg and shoulder muscles as you perform this exercise.
Tip: if this is too easy for you, even after some time, put your hands above water and use your legs only to stay afloat.
