Deep Water Circuit Workout

Thursday, May 12 2022

Take your summer workout to the deep end of the pool with Circuit Wave Deep. Lori Templeman is back with a reboot of her Circuit Wave Workout.  This 45-minute workout features the same formula as the shallow water version, featuring six “waves” of exercises that follow a circuit format.  Effective and easy-to-follow, this deep-water workout can be intensified by adding webbing gloves.   

The original shallow water version of the Circuit Wave Workout focused on strength, cardio and balance training.   In this deep-water version, balance got swapped out for core training.  Balance is rather ineffective to train in the deep end as there is no gravity present and no stable surface to balance on.  Core training is especially effective in deep water because of the lack of gravity and the ability to position the body in a variety of angles from vertical to horizontal. 

Similar to the original video, Circuit Wave Deep features six waves of exercises timed at 5 minutes each.  Set up in circuit fashion to target various components of fitness, each wave consists of 1:00 minute of upper body strength, 2:00 minutes cardio, :30 seconds of high intensity work and 1:30 minutes core strength.  With a warm up and cool down included, the total time adds up to 45 minutes.  Watch Lori talk more about the Circuit Wave Deep Workout. 

Circuit Wave Deep was filmed without equipment, however webbed gloves are ideal for intensifying the workout and adding extra upper body resistance.  The Aqualogix hi-Speed (green) upper body belles can also be used. As is recommended in all deep water workouts, a flotation belt is attached to the midsection.  Aside from safety reasons, the belt ensures correct form and alignment and frees up the arms and legs to perform large range of motion movement.
