Top 18 Swimming Pool Exercises (That Aren't Swimming)

By Bill
Pools are an incredibly useful exercise tool for anyone but specifically for anyone who needs low-impact, high-resistance exercise. In no other environment can you lift weights, move freely, and use your full range of motion with as little restriction or pain. And in no other situation can you leap and stretch to such a degree without risking injury to your joints. This makes pool-based exercise a critical part of healthy life for many walks of life. Retired seniors, pregnant mothers, and injury survivors can all benefit from daily low-impact pool exercises just as much as anyone else (and you don't even have to swim laps).
