Discover the testimony of Mathilde, a 28-year-old pregnant woman who tested an aqua-punching course.
How was the course?
An aqua-punching class lasts 45 minutes, in a pool where everyone has a walk. The teacher is outside to show us the exercises.
What were the exercises?
We begin with a quarter of an hour of cardio, with quick sequences that accelerate the heart rate.
Then, with the help of various accessories (foam chips, boards ...), we go to exercises of bodybuilding (abs, glutes, arms ...) and drainage of the body. It's exhausting !
Finally, the last 10 minutes are devoted to stretching to avoid cramps.

Yes ! After class, I was washed! The exercises added to the water pressure make these 45 minutes very physical.
Your verdict ...
