Pedaling through water may sound like the antics of a drunk man, but cycling underwater is hugely advantageous (and fun!). For one, the water pressure and temperature serves as a sort of detox massage: the pressure kneads your leg muscles while the 85-degree water stimulates the cleansing action of your lymphatic system, which they say can help rid your body of toxins. Water is 1,000 times thicker than air, creating extra resistance for your body to work through but extra buoyancy to support joints. The result? A killer workout with little risk of injury. You can burn up to 800 calories, they say, as you tone your muscles: win-win.
