Do you find that your current water workout is boring? There is sure to be a workout option accessible for you, whether you’re searching for your very first water workout or are training for a triathlon (see Parts 1 & 2)! We’ll give you some tips to help you make the most of the possible health benefits of your swimming pool, from practical basic equipment to cutting-edge technologies.
Basic Water Exercise Advice
You’re in for a treat if you’ve never worked out in the water before! Aquatic workouts are fantastic possibilities to enhance your general health, because they are less strenuous on your joints and are typically more effective than spending the same amount of time working out on dry land. You should mix up the kinds of challenges you take on if you want to maximize your workout and prevent burnout. You can prevent boredom by employing alternate workout timings and swimming at varying speeds.
The significance of hydration is another idea that appears obvious for land-based training but can occasionally be overlooked while you’re submerged in water. Yes, even when you’re drenched in water, you can still become dehydrated. Keep your water bottle close at hand, and make it a routine to sip some water in between each swimming activity. You can always program a hydration reminder timer to sound every 15 to 20 minutes if you’re like me and need help remembering.
Water Exercises for Novices
Beginner level workouts are created to assist you in achieving your fitness objectives and maintaining your newfound level of fitness if you’re just beginning your aquatic fitness adventure. The primary goals to strive toward with these objectives are to develop your endurance and to improve your technique (both strokes and breathing).
You may improve in both of those areas steadily by using a range of workout options. The objective is to stay within a single distance category until you are able to easily execute any of the workouts within that category. The plan can be followed either in order or according to your preferences. You can advance to the next stage once you can swim that distance utilizing a variety of drills without pausing.
You can advance to the Intermediate and Advanced levels once you’ve mastered the Beginner level exercises. (Additionally offered are goal-specific choices like Open Water Swimming Preparation, 1-Mile Runs, and Cardio Workouts.)
Techniques & Equipment for Water Exercises
After choosing your workout schedule, it’s time to consider how you’ll remember what to do. You can utilize a range of low-tech and high-tech items rather than having to memorize your routine, hire a coach, or beg a friend to assist you to keep track of your timing. A waterproof slate (purchasable on Amazon) on which you can write in pencil for your workout is one low-tech alternative.
When you prepare ahead of time for your swim workout, counting laps is simple, and you can concentrate on your workout rather than attempting to recall what you did previously or what you intend to do next.
