Before any aqua gym session, it’s important to warm up to adapt to the aquatic environment and prepare your body for a physical effort. So remember to begin slowly with easy exercises without accessories, to unwind your muscles and joints. you’ll then be less susceptible to injury. Are you ready and determined to tone your body? Here we go, we start with the work of the arms!
BRISK WALKING AND / OR RUNNING
Walk or run back and forth, slowly initially then obtain the pace if you’ll be able to. If the backward movement seems too hard for you, ignore it and concentrate only on the forward movement while increasing the pace. Additionally, perform a movement of balance with the arms which will help propel you and you’ll heat up considerably.
HORIZONTAL ARM MOVEMENTS
Before starting the exercise ensure that your posture is correct: standing together with your shoulders under the water, leaning against the wall. Are you in place? Alternate maintaining vertical movements and horizontal movements near the surface of the water.
For this exercise, we recommend that you just use webbed gloves to extend the resistance of the water. you’ll then get results more quickly during your aqua gym session. Stand along with your feet together, your shoulders under the water, and your arms stretched ahead of you. Perform scissors with the arms. When doing the outward movement, remember to show the palms of the hands outward. Likewise, when performing the inward movement, turn the palms of the hands inward.
Stand along with your back straight, shoulders out of the water, elbows bent, a board under each arm, legs tight. Push within the water both boards simultaneously to the thighs. The gesture must be invigorating for more effects. Also, don’t forget to blow once you push the boards into the water, this may facilitate the movements.
