This shallow-end exercise is done with pool stairs, alternately with aqua steppers. It aims at strengthening your leg muscles and at improving your balance.
With your lower body supported in the water all the time, you can easily and safely strengthen your legs. You will only be working against your upper body's weight, and against water resistance.
Stand by the side of the pool. Hold the wall with one hand. Step on the noodle with your far foot slightly in front of your body. Keep your other hand still by your side and your back straight.
In the deep area, hold the wall/edge/rail with two hands and stretch your arms to create enough space between your body and the wall. Step on the noodle with both legs down. Keep your back straight and get your body in standing position.
