Top 5 Hot Tub Exercises

Top 5 Hot Tub Exercises

The time you spend relaxing in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can be used for many activities like reading a book, listening to music or simply indulging in your backyard oasis. If you would prefer to use your spare hot tub time to strengthen and tone your body, then we have five hot tub friendly exercises you can try. Remember, it’s very important to consult a physician before beginning any exercise regimen. Make sure to take plenty of time to rest and drink lots of fluids.

5. Toe Pushes

What does it strengthen?

Calf Muscles

While sitting comfortably in the seat of your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub hold your toes against either a wall, other seat or the floor. Once you have found your most comfortable position, you can begin. Push your toes against the hot tub with a comfortable amount of force and hold the position for three seconds. Repeat this exercise three times. At your own pace, you can work your way up to holding the position for ten seconds.

4. Arm Crossovers

What does it strengthen?

Forearms, core

Begin by sitting up straight in your seat with your abdominals tightened to help with balance. Hold both arms out straight in front of you with your palms facing downwards. Quickly cross your arms over one another while alternating which one goes on top of the other. Do three sets of arm crossovers for roughly 30 seconds each.

3. Side Leg Extensions

What does it strengthen?

Legs, abdominals

Begin by sitting back in your seat so that you are comfortable and relaxed. Feel free to hold onto any available rails or ledges for support if needed. Simply stretch your legs out forward and keep them as straight as possible. Slowly and steadily spread them apart as far as your body is comfortable with and then bring them back together. Keep your torso and abdominals comfortably flexed to keep yourself balanced and posture correct. Do three sets of these for about 30 seconds each and make sure to drink plenty of water and rest in between sets.

2. Leg Lifts

What does it strengthen?

Abdominals

Begin your leg lifts by sitting back comfortably in the seat of your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and hold your abdominals tight. For additional support, hold onto any nearby ledges or rails. Stretch your legs out in front of you and keep them as straight as possible. Lift your legs upwards in a steady motion until your toes are poking out of the water. Hold this position briefly and then slowly bring them back down in front of you. After you have done ten leg lifts, take a break and relax. Complete a set of ten leg lifts three times. This exercise can be a tricky one, so feel free to take it slow and steady until you feel comfortable. You can always turn on your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub jets and take a break if needed!

1. Bicycle Kicks

What does it strengthen?

Abdominals, legs

First, sit comfortably on the edge of your seat inside of your Jacuzzi® hot tub. Support yourself firmly by holding onto a nearby rail or ledge of the spa. Once you are properly supported you can begin your workout. Begin by lifting both of your legs straight out under the water. Once you are safely balanced it’s time to start ‘cycling! Use your legs to pedal as if you are riding an imaginary bicycle. Do three sets of bicycle kicks for approximately 30 seconds each. Start out at a slow pace and work your way up as you go. Luckily you are inside of your hot tub, so resting in between sets will keep you relaxed and comfortable. Keep an eye on your breathing and overall energy level, you don’t want to tire yourself out!

It’s very important to use your time in the hot tub to rejuvenate and stretch as a part of your hot tub exercise routine. Use as much time as you need to relax in your Jacuzzi® hot tub to avoid overexerting yourself.
