You will need a pool noodle to perform this 16 minutes shallow-end workout which aims to strengthen your leg muscles and to improve your balance. It works by sliding the noodle with your leg along the bottom of the pool.
Sliding the noodle creates tough resistance for your leg muscles. The big range of motion includes more muscle groups. This is a perfect Pilates routine suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.
Warm Up (2min)
Main Set (12min)
Step on the noodle with one foot and stand in the shallow-end with straight back and your hands by your side. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart and your legs straight.
Perform the same exercise with leg and arm extension (bend and extend your leg and arms at the same time). Use your quadriceps to push the noodle down and your thigh muscles to slide out and in. Repeat for 1 minute.
