You don’t have to be a swimmer or sprightly to experience the joys of water and the benefits of water exercising.
In your own or the local pool, you have the best fitness medium imaginable. The pool is not just for kids to play around in, or for competitive swimmers only. Even if you can’t swim, it’s for you -- a fitness center that comes without embarrassment because you are doing something sensible that looks sensible!
Use the pool as a gym for:
ü general day-by-day fitness
ü body building -- using even only old socks on your hands or feet!
ü sports training and injury recovery
ü pregnancy – gentle yet great-flexibility help
ü aches and pains relief -- no matter what your age
Or, simply to feel good. Or, going one step further: to get back to feeling good!
Water exercising is also great fun: Do it to music. Do it in pairs or groups, or just indulge yourself. Get strong or try slimming with it. If you push against water, you will meet a smooth resistance that gives back what you put in. You feel that special ‘soft’ resistance that only water gives so soothingly and relaxingly. So, use it to benefit yourself or your loved ones or friends. Water is the only fitness ‘apparatus’ you need have.
Be your own coach in your own pool.

The Power of 10 seems to contradict nearly everything we're accustomed to hearing about exercise. Forget hours on the treadmill, and forget daily visits to the gym. This new program offers 20 minute workout sessions, once or twice per week, with an alluring emphasis on rest and recovery on your days off. The principle behind The Power of 10 is simple: by lifting weights in slow motion, making each rep last 20 seconds (10 seconds lifting and 10 seconds lowering) instead of the typical 7 seconds, you can maximize muscle transformation. The short workouts are so effective that your body will need days to recover and repair properly. Studies have shown that such routines can increase lean body mass, help burn calories more efficiently, and prevent cardio–vascular disease more effectively than aerobic exercise alone.
In this follow-up to the bestselling Never Shower in a Thunderstorm, New York Times columnist Anahad O'Connor uncovers the truth behind a hundred more old wives' tales and conventional-wisdom cures. O'Connor investigates nagging questions of domestic safety, such as whether you can get radiation poisoning from standing too close to a microwave. (You'll actually be exposed to more watts from your cell phone.) He unearths astounding first-aid "MacGyverisms," such as the attempts by Vietnam War battlefield medics and professional sports stars to seal wounds with super glue. (The bottom line: it works, but can irritate skin.) And he looks into the claim that a pregnant mother with heartburn should expect a hairy newborn (and is as baffled as the scientists who tallied up the clearly evident infant hairdos).
For anyone curious about whether to starve a fever or a cold, or whether stifling a sneeze will damage the body, O'Connor delivers yet another winning and irresistible collection of tips about our health.
