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.
Stand in the shallow area by the side of the pool. Rest one hand on the wall/edge and keep your arm straight. Put your other hand in the water on your side and relax both your shoulders. Step on the noodle with your far foot and spread it slightly to the side (up to 45°). Keep your back straight and your body weight on your leg, not on the wall.
