USING THE RESISTANCE OF THE WATER
Boost your AquaFitness sessions with the mesh Pullpush , improve your cardiovascular endurance and tone your body. The Pullpush 2 is easy to handle and, thanks to a wide perforated supporting surface surrounding your wrists, will increase the water’s resistance. It allows you to work on 2 areas: - your heart rate due to the speed and energy that you put into your movements - toning your upper body due to the water’s resistance
WHY WORK ON TONING YOUR MUSCLES?
Muscle toning helps to rebalance your figure and firm up all parts of your body (stomach, buttocks, arms, chest). Targeted toning exercises will encourage your body to get back into shape while getting in the habit of moving around.
Working the upper part of your body lets you tone your chest, shoulders and back, essential muscles for good posture, a toned chest and help supporting your spine.
ADVICE ON USE
Place your hands on the handles and submerge your shoulders to enhance your sensations and take full advantage of the water’s benefits. Change the position of your hands on the handles to vary your exercises.
Pullpushes are sold in pairs to balance your muscle strengthening work.
