Did you know that you can work out in a hot tub? In fact, many claim that their hot tub makes exercise possible, due to the comfortable environment within the water. The buoyancy lifts pressure from the joints, making it easier for those who suffer from aches and pains or limited mobility to move around. The heat and jets work together to relax the muscles, easing tension even further and making it even easier to stretch, move and work out.
Here are some exercises that you may want to try:
• Torso twists
• Reverse crunches
• Jumping jacks
• Toe pushes
• Arm crossovers
• Triceps dips
Another approach to low-impact exercise in the hot tub is water yoga. Of course, we always recommend that you speak with your doctor before engaging in a new workout routine.
