How to do it

To do this work out, use two full water bottles (one in each hand) or some light dumbbells such as BECO’s Aqua Beflex Hand Paddles ($27; swimshop.co.uk). Start in the shallow end, with the water around chest height. Perform each exercise for the set amount of reps before moving on to the next exercise as quickly as possible. Once finished, rest for two minutes, then repeat the circuit twice more.
