To say that I love a pool is to say nothing. It’s funny, but even the smell of chlorine for me is a memory from childhood, when all bathing accessories smelled of this substance. Now we mostly go swimming with our daughters, it also happens that I am in proud solitude visiting the pool in order to keep fit and lose weight.
What you need to lose weight
I can say for sure that you can come to the pool not only for a good mood, but also to lose weight. But for this, your classes should be regular – 2-3 times a week. The load must be intense. Ideally, all the allotted 45 minutes you should not stand on the small flesh with the board, but move as much as possible. And of course not superfluous will be a set of exercises for weight loss.
I learned about exercises on aqua aerobics. But even without special exercises, the effect on the figure will be noticeable if you load yourself sufficiently. For example, in one of the workouts, try to calculate how many meters you swim in 45 minutes. In the next trip to the pool, you can already be guided by this figure and try to surpass yourself. And there is not far to the Olympic records;)
Swing legs – to strengthen the back, side of the thigh. We stand in the water on the neck, stretching our arms forward. Jump up slightly on the spot and alternately lift the legs extended upwards. We try to reach the left hand with the toe of the right foot and vice versa. Then you can vary the exercise and raise your legs to the side.
Swing hands – to strengthen the hands. We stand in the water on the neck. We spread wide straight arms and forcefully unite them in front of us. To enhance the effect, you can take special dumbbells for water or gloves, frog legs.
Walking on the spot – to strengthen the legs and buttocks. We imitate walking on the spot, while raising the knees high. At the same time you can jump, starting from the bottom.
Running on the spot – to strengthen the legs and buttocks. Now we imitate running on the spot and at the same time try to slap ourselves on the buttock with the heel.
Jumps – to strengthen the legs. Feet shoulder-width apart, arms at the seams. Then in a jump we bring our legs together, and we stretch our arms to the sides. And then, on the contrary – in the jump we put our feet shoulder-width apart, and our hands are made at the seams. Repeat jumps.
On press. Hang in the water vertically, legs raise at an angle. At the same time, we hold onto the surface of the water with our hands. We do swimming movements with our feet, as if we are going to crawl or make scissors.
For waist – in a jump we twist hips in one direction and in another. You can do this canopy with your hands, bending your knees. In this case, the upper part spins in one direction, and the hips in another.
These exercises will not require much physical strain from you. Many of them are made even by my mother, who hated physical education classes at school. After the pool, a brutal appetite wakes up, but do not give it up, otherwise all your efforts will be wasted.
