Squat in the Pool


Posted by Heather J.

If you want to strengthen the muscles around your knees, while protecting your knees at the same time, try doing sets of squats in the pool. Water provides a protective cushion while countering the effects of gravity. After you jump in and warm up a bit, stand in chest-deep water about two feet from the pool's side, facing it. Hold the pool's edge with both hands, and slowly bend your knees and lower into a squat, pushing your buttocks behind you like you're sitting in a chair. Squat until your chin hits the water, then slowly rise and repeat. Do as many reps and sets as you would on land.
