If so, keep reading as to how a spa and hot tub can be an easy way to keep your body in shape.
When people think of water exercises, they usually think about swimming in a pool. However, the warm and bubbling environment of a spa or hot tub can be the perfect place to enhance your health and fitness.
1. Rolling your shoulders
Try standing straight in the center of your hot tub and then begin your workout by doing some light shoulder rolls forward and backward. Thanks to the heat and water resistance, this easy movement can help to improve your joint mobility while improving circulation to your neck, shoulders, and torso.
2. Twist your torso
Get into a standing or sitting position with your shoulders submerged and then cross your arms over your chest. Now you will want to contract your abdominal muscles and then twist slowly from right to left and then left to right. As you twist, you should exhale and then inhale as you are returning to your center. Make sure to keep your shoulders relaxed and focus on trying to improve your range of motion. It is recommended that you do around three sets of 20 to 30 twists.
3. Kick your feet
While you are in the seated position, extend your legs towards the center of your hot tub. You will then want to rotate your legs and feet in and out, bending your knees as if you are pedaling your bicycle. In order to work on your quadriceps and loosen up your hip flexors, you can also straighten, lower, and lift your legs against the natural resistance of the water. You can do either for about three sets of 20 to 30 repetitions.
4. Clap your hands
While you are in the standing position, you will want to submerge your arms underneath the water and then extend them out from your sides. With your thumbs pointed towards the sky and hands flat. Then you will need to bring your out in to touch your palms together and extend them back out. This easy movement allows you to work on your chest, biceps, triceps, and shoulders. You should do three sets of 20 to 30 repetitions.
