This exercise targets your triceps. You can move up and down on the ladder (pictured), or try another easier version. Start by holding on to the edge of the pool with both hands. Similarly to the dry-land version, lift your body up out of the water and then lower it. Keep your core engaged as you slowly lower yourself towards the pool floor by bending your elbows. The movement should not come from your hips, only your arms. The water will support your body so the exercise is a bit easier.
