Push ups on land are just not fun! Push ups in the water are made easy but are they are effective? Most certainly! Actually push ups in the water are technically push downs - you are remaining vertical and the diagram showcases, the fitness tool - the EZ Swimmer is moving downward in the water.
Differences with Aquatic Barbells and Other Water Aerobics Tools
The EZ Swimmer uses your own body weight. In 100 EZ Swimmer What You Need to Know we detailed how the EZ Swimmer was designed to your BMI not your "weight". A customized workout just designed for you.
Applications - Golf, Tennis, Daily Chores
During our daily chores, our upper body can help by providing strength. Gold and tennis are athletic sports that demand agility and strength. Golfers can burn up the course IF they have the strength for the long drives. Adding a upper body target toning with water push downs is very effective and yet fun! Yes, I stated fun! The water is the fun element - it add the low impact and the happy health portions to the workout making target toning enjoyable and fun. It is still hard work but very gratifying.
Similarities Between Target Toning in the Water and On Land
Just as our body position is diagonal on land, so too, in the water, we are seeking a body position which is diagonal. Feet can be on the swimming pool floor, eventually you will become comfortable enough to have your feet off the pool floor.

Posture Precaution for Water Aerobics
As in all exercise movements, proper posture is needed with this movement because we don't wish to strain our back or our neck. This is especially for water aerobics whether working with any fitness tool, I always
advise clients to turn their head to the side to make sure their neck is not hyper extended. With the EZ Swimmer, keep in mind, you have more buoyancy and your own body weight and the tendency to hyper-extend your neck is inherent when you are recruiting more muscles.
