Friendly reminder that fitness isn't limited to the gym! Get aquatic & take your workouts to the pool, Flipper! Not only is swimming a great recovery workout, you’ll stock up on vitamin D while you’re doing it. Check out our go-to water based workout.
Truth time - we’re horrible swimmers. We went to swim lessons for years and just never really got it.
HOWEVER, you do not have to be an Olympic swimmer to see the benefits of a few laps in the pool. Swimming is an automatic resistance workout - since water is almost 800 times denser than air - and doesn’t put stress on your joints. It also makes for a great way to soak up some vitamin D!
@wbanks85 has been hitting our local public pool to get some laps in for active recovery. Try this little workout he put together:
10 medicine ball slams
10 push ups
Scale down the rounds and/or reps if you’re just starting out, and add to it each week to keep challenging yourself. We can’t guarantee you’ll be able to race Michael Phelps anytime soon, but can guarantee you’ll get a great workout. Meanwhile we’ll be in the shallow end attempting to get as tan as possible...#fail
