If you have been thinking about investing in a Marquis Swim Spa, but just aren’t sure if you will have enough room to do what you want to do, let us put your mind at ease. A swim spa may not be big enough to practice a dive entrance or flip turns, but they are certainly large enough to provide a great workout for anyone from a beginner to an avid swimmer. Here are 5 strokes that you can practice with plenty of room in your Marquis Swim Spa:
The front crawl is a great stroke to use when targeting your arms. Although there is some movement from your legs, the majority of the work comes from bringing your arms out of the water then pushing back against the water to propel yourself forward. The front crawl can also be used to increase speed and strength, when trying to improve your overall swimming ability.
Most images that you see of people using a swim spa, shows them using some kind of forward stroke with their head in the water, but swim spas are also great for doing the backstroke. The backstroke is a perfect resting stroke because you move at a slower pace and your head is out of the water. You are still working your arms, as well as, your back muscles, but it is not as intense. Because it is not as intense of a stroke as many others you will want to turn down the swim jets when you switch to the back stroke.
The breaststroke is another stroke that you will want to keep the swim jets low for. It is a slower stroke but it works the legs as well as the arms, as you move both in a circular motion to propel yourself forward. The key to a good breaststroke is to not break the surface tension.
Sidestroke is also not known for its speed, but it is a great way to work out the sides of your core. In addition you are working both your arms and your legs during this stroke, the only thing you need to watch for is to make sure that you are spending an equal amount of time on each side.
This is more of an advanced swimming stroke that does require more room for its wide range of motion, but there is certainly plenty of room for it in your Marquis Swim Spa. Like the breaststroke you are moving your arms in a circular motion, but unlike the breaststroke you are using such force and large motion that your chest is actually lifted out of the water with each stroke. It is a fast stroke that definitely adds an anaerobic element in addition to the intense workout for your arms and core.
As you can see, there are plenty of strokes that fit perfectly into a Marquis Swim Spa making them an ideal choice for those who enjoy swimming for leisure or for intense workout. Marquis Swim Spas also offer those nice relaxing spa seats, so you can get a full recovery after your workout. Still not sure?
