With the weather being perpetually hot, there’s no time like the present to submerge yourself in some refreshing water. And while you’re at it, you can burn calories and tone up all over—faster, in fact, than if you exercised in the air-conditioned sanctuary of your gym. Why? Water provides 12 to 15 times more resistance than air. So you can burn as many as three and a half times more calories than if you walked at a moderate pace—and it’s more refreshing! You don’t even have to swim to get these results.
Here are 10 easy ways to get started. You’ll have more fun, stay cool, and shed pounds in no time.
