Gentle hot tub exercises can help relax tired muscles. Most of these exercises are fairly easy and can be done regularly. If you suffer from a medical condition please contact your doctor before exercising.
Here are a few gentle exercises for you to try:
Calf muscles: Whilst sitting in your hot tub push against the end of the hot tub with your toes, hold for 3 seconds…relax and repeat 10 times.
Thigh muscles: Resistance exercise: Sitting in the hot tub push knees together and pull apart against the resistance of your hands.
Neck muscles: Sitting in your hot tub look upwards and tilt your head to the left and then to the right, rotate in a circle and repeat to maximum of 10 times (IMPORTANT: DO THIS EXERCISE VERY SLOWLY )
Shoulder muscles: Sitting in your hot tub roll shoulders forward. Hold 3 seconds then roll back and hold 3 seconds. Repeat to 10.
Abdominal muscles: Whilst sitting pull in your stomach and hold 3 seconds …relax and repeat 10 times
When you have finished these exercises close your eyes and breathe slowly and deeply.
