Aquatic Exercises: Lower Body Stretches 💦

Exercising in water allows you to have less stress on your joints. When you exercise in water that comes up to your neck, your joints are only supporting about 10 percent of your body weight.🤓
Do the exercises with your spine in neutral position. Find this by standing with your feet about shoulder width apart. Stand with your knees slightly bent and your weight evenly distributed. Tighten your stomach muscles and you should feel balanced. Keep your stomach muscles tightened during all the exercises.
Make sure to breath and never hold your breath when you exercise. Each of these exercises are done with you standing in shoulder high water, unless otherwise directed by your therapist.☝️
These exercises will stretch your joints and strengthen your muscles in your lower back, buttocks, hips and legs.
