 Swimming exercises


Do not be lazy during swimming times, and take advantage of the session to perform as many exercises and movements as possible to

 strengthen, build and tighten the entire muscles of your body, especially since studies confirm that practicing water movements during swimming increases the endurance strength of the shoulders to double.


Your water exercises

Working out in the water gives you a double effect compared to a regular workout on the surface, without the muscle soreness after

 working out in the gym. Water exercises also improve blood circulation, refresh muscles, and reduce the possibility of injuries. Try the following underwater exercises:


Start with normal movements, with your feet flat on the bottom of the pool, straight below your hips, your neck straight, your chest elevated and your arms relaxed.


1- Bend your knees slightly, then go forward each time with a light jump with your right foot forward and your left foot back.


2- Jump again and change with the jump step the position of the feet, where the left leg is forward and the right leg is back. With the position of the arms opposite the legs.


3- Jump with the left leg raised to the top. He pushed the left arm out.


4- Jump again, with your left leg back on the first position, and with the same movement raise the knee of your right leg.


5- Jump, resting on the right leg, and raise the left leg to the side again. Repeat the movement 8 times, then change the position of the legs.
