Jacuzzi San Diego owners love their hot tub because they can use it for plenty of activities. Want to have fun with your family and friends, listen to music, read a book, or take your time to unwind after a long, hard day at work?
It’s no secret that a hot tub can take your relaxation to a whole new level. But did you know that you can also use it for exercise? Turn your Jacuzzi into an aquatic gym with these hot tub friendly exercises and let hydrotherapy jets tend to your muscles afterward!
Roll your shoulders
This easy exercise is a great way to start your workout routine. Sit in your hot tub or spa and slowly roll your shoulder forward, hold for a couple of seconds, and then roll backward.
Although simple, this movement can increase your joint mobility, improve the blood flow in your torso and toward the neck. The secret lies in the heat and water resistance.
Your first set may be somewhere around five repetitions. In time, you can increase the number of repetitions and do three sets of 30 reps.
Work your core
Boosting your core strength will contribute to better posture, balance, and coordination. Sit facing the center of your Jacuzzi and grip the wall of the tub with both hands for additional support. Raise your knees and bring them toward your chest. Then fully extend your legs, keeping them together all the time. Do three sets of 20 to 30 reps.
Just make sure that you tighten your ab muscles, keep your back straight and your neck relaxed throughout the exercise. Do not arch your lower back and avoid bringing the shoulders toward your ears.
Work your quadriceps
Sit on the edge of a hot tub’s seat and hold on to the wall of the spa. Extend your legs toward the center of your Jacuzzi and start pedaling as if you are riding a bicycle. Keep on bending your knees and rotating your feet and legs against the resistance of the water for 30 seconds. Work your way up to a full minute.
We all know that cycling is an amazing workout for building strength and endurance without putting too much strain on the joints. Why not try cycling underwater to get a whole new perspective of these benefits? With this fantastic combination of cardio and strength you will get in shape in no time!
Tone your calves
Stand flat-footed in the center of your Jacuzzi and raise your heels, stretching your legs as much as possible. Challenge yourself to remain on your tiptoes as long as you can for maximum results.
If you need support to stay balanced, feel free to place your hand on the wall of your tub until you get used to the exercise. Repeat the movement 15 to 30 times for three sets.
Raising your calves works great for improving balance, stability and your core strength. It will also boost your blood circulation and strengthen your legs, especially the calves, which can be difficult muscles to tone or build.
