I'm trying to incorporate some different exercises into my daily routine---and nothing sounds better during the summer than SWIMMING!
I wanted to ask you experts about this. Here is my situation:
I live in condominiums, so we have an outside pool that goes from 3 feet (where you step into the pool) up to 5 ft (the deepest end). Obviously it is not an olympic-sized pool, but just an average "apartment-complex" pool.
Now I know that swimming is a fantastic exercise and planned to do it today.
But my question is this: Can you ladies please tell me the greatest way to utilize this small pool space and burns calories? Should I stick to doing laps back and forth across the pool, or anything else I haven't thought of?
My plan was to do laps in different styles a few times. If I do this, how many laps do you recommend, and for how long should I be in the water?
