This workout works the underarms,shoulders and back muscles and requires steady, even breathing.
1. While standing in waist-deep water, place your hands on edge of the pool about should-width apart. Slowly lift your body out of the water until arms are fully extended but not locked. Then slowly lower yourself back to your original position.
2. If you have difficulty pressing up, you can add a small jump off the bottom of the ppol. Or, to increase the difficulty, bend your legs, just enough so that your feet don't touch the bottom of the pool as you lower down.
3. Start with 5 and work up to 15 repetitions.
