Besides swimming, kicking, pulling, aqua-walking and aqua-jogging in an Endless Pool, there are numerous other exercises one can do including strength training.

Blast the Endless Pool to its highest speed and outstretch your arms as you press your palms together under the water. Push your hands together against the fast-moving current to do some upper body work.



Alternatively, hold the bar with one (or two) hands and extended arms. Pull yourself against the oncoming current as you exercise your biceps.


Alternatively, hold the bar with one hand with your legs extended and float on one side. Pull your legs up against the current to do some core work.
