The hydromassage tub or hot tub can become the ideal space to carry out a few simple exercises, representing a beneficial experience after physical activity.
Try and follow our suggestions as the water will make any movement simpler:
Legs: Immerse yourself completely in the bath, leaning against the back rest, lift a leg, bend it and bring the knee slowly towards your body, stretch the leg and repeat the exercise three times, first with one leg and then with the other. You can carry this out up to five consecutive times.
Abdominals: Immerse yourself completely in the bath, leaning against the back rest, breathe in deeply, and while you breathe out, softly contract the abdominal muscles. Do this exercise calmly, trying to do a series of five exercises. You can gradually increase up to ten consecutive exercises.
Shoulders and neck: Immerse yourself completely in the bath, leaning against the back rest. Assure that your shoulders are immersed. With a circular movement, slowly rotate the shoulders frontwards and backwards five times. After a brief pause, complete three complete exercises. You can gradually increase up to ten consecutive exercises. In the same position and maintaining the shoulders immersed, delicately and slowly move your head from one side to the other, working on your neck muscles.
Relaxation: After having completed the exercises, put yourself in a sitting position, close your eyes and slowly do a few complete breathing cycles (inhalation and exhalation). After a hydromassage session, wrap yourself in a dry bathrobe or towel, and lie down and relax for a few minutes: in this way you will encourage sweating and at the same time you will allow your blood pressure to return to normal level.
