have you ever taken a water aerobics class? you could take a couple at a local Y or gym and then do the movements they teach you on your own. Just walking through water with long strides and open hands to make full presses through the water is fabulous. Of course any and all swimming is helpful to all sorts of muscles and connective tissue strengthening. Try to keep your core tight with navel to spine.
Jumping jacks are awesome in mid chest deep water, explode up out of the water when your legs come back together for extra oomph, doing a "twist" move works waist and tum, especially when the middle of the twist is like jumping over a log and bring knees to chest. Make sure your feet come down to full contact (toes and heels) or you will have pain in calves from staying tippy toe with any water aerobic style exercise. Jogging type move with body straight, knees stay together and just kick one heel up to booty at a time is great for backs of legs.

We have a pool and I swim laps. It is not a lap pool but is 44' long so I can easily swim up and down or across and back. I use different strokes. I also walk in the shallow end. Harder is trying to run in water. All kinds of things to do in a pool. I would imagine you could google water exercises and get a bunch of ideas. My favorite type of exercise is swimming. WHY? Because it doesn't feel like exercise to me.
I can't do the mid chest exercises since then I am "trying" to stand on the slanted side that goes down to the deep end. Course that is exercise in itself.
Go for it. You will love exercising in water.

I used to teach water aerobics and know from personal experience that you can really increase your fitness this way.

Second everything that everyone has said. You can also use a noodle (those long skinny foam things) as resistance. Hold it in your hands and press it down into the water. The noodle will try to stay on the surface so you have to use your muscles to hold it down. You can work your biceps and your triceps, as well as your legs, this way. You can also use it in the deep water, sit astride it like you would a horse and move your arms and legs to propel yourself across the pool. For fun, and working your core, you can try to stand on the noodle in the deep water. It's a balancing act for sure and it's fun to challenge yourself. Once you can stand on the noodle, try jogging up and down. Or try two noodles, one on each foot (this is really challenging).

When you are in the water, really use the resistance of the water to your benefit. Cup your hands. PUSH against the water any time you move. The harder you work, the better, because your muscles will get stronger.

Kimberly: Yay! New research has shown that any kind of movement in the water will give you an excelerated fat burn. (That's why Micheal Phelps can eat enormous amounts of food and stay so thin and in shape!)

One of my favorite things is something I saw in an ad for Bed, Bath and Beyond last year and asked for as a birthday gift. DH got it for me!

It's a set of Speedo Aquafit water exercise weights. There are two "dumb bells", a "weight" (float) belt, and ankle weights. They are all made out of a sturdy foam that creates water resistance. So, you put the belt on and all the foam floties are around your waist. While you are water walking, even just back and forth in the pool, there is extra resistance and you get a real workout.

Do arm exercises like chest flies and bicep curls while you are walking, using the dumb bells. I met a new friend at the pool the other day. She is my age but when she was much younger, she was an aerobics instructor and trainer. She saw my water weight set and asked if she could try the dumb bells. She said, "These feel like 10-15 pounds weight! I NEED to get some of these!"

Anyway, I'll try to find a quick link so you can see what they look like.

I only use the ankle weights at the side of the pool and not for water walking because I can't keep my balance in them. I put the ankle weights on, lean my back against the side of the pool, pull my legs straight out in front of me and do side kicks or scissors kicks.

When I started with theses it was last June and I weight almost 40 pounds more than now! I couldn't go as long as I can now, but I would put the belt on and walk back and forth, water up to my neck, and moving my arms around holding the weights.

Now I can do all kinds of stuff for 45 minutes or more when I have the time. I jump and twist. I put the dumb bells under my arm pits, life my legs up like I'm sitting in a chair and do splashing kicks or bicycles with my legs while making circular movements with my hands.

You can go to the Dollar store and get a couple of noodles (you know what those are, right?) and a kick board and get a workout with those as well.

I'll be back in a minute if I can find a link....

One thing: Be careful about doing any kind of kicking with resistance on your feet or ankles, especially if you have knee issues. I have knee problems and I can do some pretty good damage with resistance, or even water shoes, on when I kick. I can only do kicking with my bare feet. Slow movements will usually be okay with resistance, but listen to your body.

BTW: Click on the picture and I think it will get bigger and you can see the weight belt better.

This is a description of it in one of the ads:

"Turn your pool into a personal gym with our Aquatic Fitness System. Simply snap on the adjustable buoyancy belt and aqua runners, grab your nonslip dumbbells, and get moving! Each UV-resistant piece is crafted from ultra buoyant closed-cell foam with soft, nonabrasive components that won’t peel, crack, or fade with prolonged use and exposure to pool chemicals.

Classic buoyancy belt keeps the body in an upright, vertical position for no-impact water exercise; accommodates up to a 44" waist
Medium resistance aquatic dumbbells are excellent for upper body strength training and flotation support
Strap-on aqua runners increase your cardiovascular workout while strengthening and toning your lower body
Quick-drying mesh tote bag has drawstring closure and shoulder strap
Handbook of exercises included

Made in the USA. "

I have aqua weights that strap to arms and legs. I use in the pool, I really like them. I can simply walk around in them, or do scissors with my legs in water, or work my arms in many ways. They are fun!

Kimberly: You are gonna have FUN with these! They really are fun. You will feel the soreness the next day, but while you are doing it, it doesn't feel like anything but fun in the water. That lady in the picture looks just like me working out!!! Yeah, right! But I do knee lifts and I have put the ankle/foot resistance weights on and jogged or else kick your fit straight out in front, tough your fingers with your toes. Soon you'll be breathing heavy and know you are getting a fat blasting cardio along with the strength from resistance. I could not find them on the Bed, Bath and Beyond site so maybe it was just a summer promo they did in June last year. Maybe they sell them on the Speedo site? Gonna go look...

Ha! On the Speedo website home page they have a picture of Michael Phelps! Cool!

Here is a link to a set. It's not exactly the same as mine, but same idea.

Read the reviews. Most people love them. They come with an instructional booklet and you can also order the DVD.

I miss my pool!!! I agree with everyone on how fun these workouts are! I always used the noodle and had so much fun working out.

Kimberly, the best part of water aerobics is you will feel wonderful the rest of the day. It is such a feel good workout.
