Wet Workout Wednesday

Hot, hot, hot! We've had great weather here in Minneapolis lately, PERFECT for taking your workout to the water, and I'm hoping you've had the same!  I'm bringing you today another edition of Wet Workout Wednesday....a 4 part series of short videos demonstrating acquatic aerobic exercise that you can take to the water and try for yourself.

If you're looking for water exercises that really get your heart pumpin', last week's edition may have been a bit mild for you. If so, today's edition should remedy that!

What do you think? Try doing that for 20 minutes and let me know how it feels. I'm gonna try this one tomorrow morning and will report back!

What I've been doing whenever I can steal the pool away for myself is to swim laps around the deep end for 15 minutes, take a short break with these aerobic moves, then laps again to finish up. I absolutely LOVE the water, and as one of my readers stated, water workouts are the only exercise where you can get sweaty without, well, getting sweaty!

What water aerobics moves do you know that work your muscles for a low impact workout?


  1. I didn't realize that is where you live. We just booked a hotel for a long weekend up there. (Family event.) We chose a place near the bike trail system so hubby and I can get some rides in each morning while the boys sleep the day away. We are going to be staying near the mall and airport since my oldest is flying in from college to meet us. (We are driving 7 hours.)

  2. @Karen - Seriously, you're coming to Minneapolis??!! Would you have time for even a cup of coffee while you're here?! That's so great that you found the ideal place to stay, too. Let me know!

  3. What a great idea for such a hot day...I need to get in the pool more often. Wishing you all the best in your weight loss.


  4. Oh that would be so fun but I doubt I will have a free moment. We are coming for a edding celebratory thing and so now have other family dinners, etc. filling the time. And my son is flying in from college (where he is spending the summer) so this will be a chance to visit with him too. But maybe the next time I get up there for a family something-or-other it will not be so jam packed.
